Prophet, that one!
Last night Rep. Thom Tillis, one of the front-runners to become the new Republican Speaker of the N.C. House, said on WBTV that funding formulas for road improvements were going to get changed, if he has anything to do with it:
Tillis said he wants to take a look at the "equity formula," which critics say gives too much money to rural areas while not giving enough to urban areas like Charlotte.
"Like Charlotte." Hmmm. Tillis is from Charlotte.
Meanwhile, it seems all too obvious that Republicans in the U.S. House will spend much of 2011 doing only two things: (a) attempting to repeal the health insurance reform law and (b) investigating Obama (can impeachment be more than a few months away?).
On (a), we look forward to the circus.
On (b), we look forward to the snakepit.
Republicans have always said that government cannot work, and they're about to prove it all over again.
