how much of the $800 million in stimulus money alocated to NC went to the worthy projects you named, such as roads?
Of the 100 worst uses of stimulus funds identified in a report issued by 2 United States Senators, how many were in North Carolina? Try 12. Things like funding a study on the impact of video game useage by senior citizens, funding for the NC Insect Museum are just two.
NC had shots at a tire factory in Brunswick County and a Caterpillar facility, each of which would employ 1,500 people once construction was completed. And how about the plant which could have come to NC but ended up in Mobile, Alabama? Another opportunity lost. And how many would have been employed during the construction phase.
So don't blame Burr or the Republicans.
Start closer to home.
Start with a Governor who allowed the stimulus funds to be used for frivilous, do nothing projects. Continue with a Governor who allowed a Secretary of Commerce to lose opportunity after opportunity. And still she did not replace him or at the very least demand he get out of Raleigh & directly contact the decision makers for these lost opportunities.
Don't throw stones @ Burr or the Republicans. Remember, they were in the minority when these things were going down.
Want the same ole, same ole. Vote for Mike and Bev's little boy Walter Dalton. And vote for the current White House occupant who would have four more years to drive this nation deeper in debt.
Or vote for change. McRory for Governor. Romney for President.
