This ain't good

I said it before and I'll say it again.
McCrory may have caught a falling knife. The economy locally (state wide) is nowhere near as strong(?) as the national economy is. (I should say its more weak....but).

Wait - if this continues - come July when people get thrown off of the unemployment rolls. The backlash will start.
The state GOP has over reached - and badly so.
Do we know why the Unemployment Trust Fund is "borrowing" money? Do we?

"In fact, North Carolina cut unemployment insurance taxes six times between 1992 and 2000."

That's right folks. Rather than plan for a rainy day the Democrats did something VERY Republican.
They CUT taxes.
Don't get me wrong - no one saw this recession coming and they didn't think it would be THIS bad.
But no one likes to see a fund grow and grow and grow. What they say is "Now is the time to cut taxes".

Thom Goolsby ran on the platform of jobs jobs JOBS
And has not proposed one bill to stimulate growth.
On this subject he is an abysmal failure - as is the rest of the GOP.
And these unemployment figures don't include House of Raeford or the possible closure of DAK.
I'm getting a very bad feeling about this....
