Yesterday during NC House Speaker Thom Tillis's press conference, someone present in the room tweeted that Tillis said our state needs "to close the gap with Mississippi, Alabama and other SE states on being business-friendly. Great role models."
Tillis was evidently speaking about corporate taxes and regulations, but he might as well have been talking about education, environment, quality of life ... you name it.
As of this morning, laws were introduced in the NC General Assembly to...
1. Reject the implementation of federal health care reform.
2. Greatly reduce and otherwise hamper unemployment insurance.
3. Outlaw labor unions in the state's Constitution, when we're already a right-to-work state.
Regressive, nullifying, backward, poor-hating. We're catching up with you, Mississippi and Alabama!
