But if memory serves McCrory said the unemployment changes would take place in 2013/2014 budget which runs from July 1 to June 30 2014.
That would mean savings of $700M starting in 2014 for a repayment time frame of 2018 (or in the 2017/2018 budget).
The other thing that's interesting is the concept of this making people get jobs.
I've seen the comment that you could work two or 3 jobs.
Nice thought but that infers that Her Majesty created those jobs and are there for the taking. That would be about 3 million jobs
Want to give Bev credit for creating 3M jobs Tom?
Of course not because she didn't !!
As stated the state has not recaptured jobs lost during the recession. They're NOT there.
But our new Gov is indeed wanting to fill state jobs with cronies from Duke and Progress energy company's gee - I wonder why?
Or put a person who runs a company with ties to DENHR contracts in charge of DEHNR?
Or perhaps the gov will create jobs with his support of light rail transit?
It will get interesting, that's for sure but tax cuts he has proposed without the spending cuts to balance them out will result in more debt? That's the reason why GOP Governors are treading lightly. They are now convinced that tax cuts do NOT generate increased revenues and never have - and now that DEBT has become such a hot button issue they are caught in their own ideology failures much the same as the Dems have been for years.
