"Add to that the hundreds of millions in underfunded state retiree pensions and retiree health coverage, someone needs to find a little Dutch boy to put his finger in the leaking dike."
Thats wrong Tom:
This is from Pew research a very conservative outfit:
"North Carolina, South Dakota, Washington, and Wisconsin were the best among the states, with pensions funded at 95 percent or better in 2010."
I hope you're right about McCrory making hard choices but I have my doubts.
He's responsible for a proposed 9% property tax hike proposal on the table right now and OMG he's got a Saffo like infatuation with convention centers:
"The Charlotte Convention Center has cost taxpayers as much as $30 million annually for construction debt, operating losses and incentives worth of hundreds of thousands of dollars to win business. The promised payback from the investment hasn’t materialized."
Different party affiliations but same outcome I'm afraid to say - but he hasn't done anything yet as Governor so I will wait.
Bush proved the GOP is no different than the tax and spend democrats and their support for 17 debt ceiling increases which now are an anathema to them is putrid, two faced politics if you ask me.
I don't hold out too much hope for McCrory
