We MUST spend MORE because we, um, CAN’T spend what we already have.

  Makes no sense, right?  But that’s state government — actually, GOVERNMENT — for you.   Democrats and their queen, Roy Cooper, are demanding that we foot the bill for MORE Medicaid spending for even MORE potential recipients.  But, hold the phone.  State auditor Beth…

  Yep.  The crew that convinced all those elected Republicans in Raleigh to become WHORES for subsidized solar shysters is now working to convince the NCGOP to include Medicaid expansion in that embrace.   SO sayeth ‘Toilet boy’ at the NC Insider:      …

“Losing” that Obamacare money

Jim Morrill IS concerned: What this bill does is scale back the expansion of Medicaid promised in ObamaCare.  How do you LOSE money you never had in the first place? It’s government-speak gobbledygook — kinda like calling a reduction in the increase in spending for…

#ncpol: Politifact soiling its nose at the dawn of the Cooper era

Just as we thought, The N&O’s Politifact fact-checking column will, when all is said and done, have Roy Cooper looking like the most truthful political figure in American history since George Washington. Monsieur Doran’s latest piece beats up Republicans for being mean to Ol’ Roy…

Have some MORE Medicaid! (The kids and grandkids will be picking up the bill.)

He won the governor’s race in the middle of the night by the hair of his chinny chin chin. But Roy Cooper has put the pedal to the metal in an all out race to the far-left lane that has Rob Schofield and Chris Fitzsimon…

Medicaid: That GIANT sucking sound

Roy Cooper sees the expansion of Medicaid as a “job creation” tool.  In 1992, Ross Perot talked about that giant sucking sound produced from NAFTA taking all our jobs to Mexico.  In 2016, Medicaid is the giant sucking sound stifling economic growth in our state…

ONCE AGAIN: “Expanding Medicaid” = ObamaCare

I seriously can’t understand the logic behind having TWO prominent Republican leaders go public — right in front of a HUGE election — with their desire to expand Medicaid. Gov. Pat McCrory and his DHHS queen Aldona Wos first hinted about it.  Senate nominee —…

Gov. Pat: ‘Door Open’ to ObamaCare, expanding Medicaid

Medicaid is trying to break North Carolina’s economy.  It’s an out-of-control mess.  In 2013, as ObamaCare was being implemented, states were being encouraged to expand their Medicaid programs as a way to smooth the rollout of that bureaucratic nightmare. In 2013, conservatives urged the GOP majority on…

Are Bill Barber & The NCDP writing N&O headlines, now?

Hmmm.  Misleading information in the N&O.  I know, I know.  What else is new?  But today’s edition really takes the cake.  The headline on the lead story this morning on the Raleigh Rag’s web site read: Senate budget would cut elderly, blind and disabled from Medicaid…

Better Late Than Never to The ObamaCare Fight

Gov. Pat apparently has seen the light (or, more likely, the statewide polling or the whip counts in the state House)  and come  over from the dark side.  Until today, our chief executive had been surprisingly mute — and sometimes speaking rather halting or apprehensive…
