Adios, Aldona. (Let the cash dash BEGIN!)

I love being proved right.     Not long after news broke about likely Democrat nominee Roy Cooper surpassing Gov. Pat in fundraising,  DHHS secretary (and uber-fundraiser extraordinaire) Aldona Wos  has been freed from her cage at DHHS and unleashed on the political world.  …

Piling on Dr. Wos

Make no mistake — we are NOT exactly “fans” of the welfare state here.  In our opinion, the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) could collapse into a giant sinkhole — never to be seen again — and the world would be a…
