The N&O reported that one of Sen. Phil Berger’s five goals for the new Republican Senate is:
 
“Write a state budget with no tax increases and with the intent of letting temporary sales tax and income tax surcharges expire on schedule” (italics added).
 
Saying that’s your “intent” is a lot different from promising you’ll do it. Is this a shift in position?

    “hope” is also a lot different than promising you will do something. Most people like to “cash in their hopes”

    That was a pipe dream…but Berger’s goals aren’t.

    Next issue.
