Lesson for Democrats in Raleigh: Republicans Always Lie and Don't Play Fair
House Speaker Tim Moore suddenly called a vote on over-riding Governor Cooper's veto of the Republican budget while almost half the House was attending other events on this 18th anniversary of 9/11. The override passed 55-9. This was after Moore had indicated to various Democratic leaders that no votes would be taken today.
For Republicans, the General Assembly is Thunderdome, and they're wearing impenetrable armor (they think).
I want revenge. We'll get it too. I want small-minded, shriveled-heart, bile-belching revenge. If that's the way they play it.
Rep. Deb Butler expressed the anger of all the Democrats in the NC House.
