Richard Burr: HB2 went “too far”

burrA few years back, he told us trying to defund ObamaCare was ”the dumbest idea” he’d ever heard — shoving a knife in the back of conservatives attempting a last-minute killing of that fiscal nightmare.  He voted FOR allowing federal bureaucrats to use racial quotas in overseeing local residential zoning matters.  Now, he’s shoving a knife in the backs of legislators, the governor, and most North Carolinians over the “bathroom law”:

Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., is criticizing his state’s anti-LGBT legislation that prohibits transgender people from using the bathroom of their choice.

“Yeah, I’ve got issues,” Burr told the Huffington Post when asked if he has problems the law, known as HB2. “The legislature botched what they were trying to do. It was far too expansive.”

The law, signed by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory, repeals protections against LGBT people by preventing local municipalities from passing anti-discrimination ordinances, and requires them to use bathrooms that correspond to their birth gender. Burr broke his silence Tuesday by talking about the law, and predicted it will eventually be changed in some capacity.

“It will be decided one of two ways: through the courts, where everybody’s chosen to place it now, or the General Assembly and the Charlotte City Council getting together and solving what was blundered on both sides,” Burr explained. He said the General Assembly “went too far” and “the City of Charlotte created an issue where there wasn’t a problem.”[…]

This guy has been screwing us, and our efforts, over and over again for years.  And here he comes, hat in hand, asking for us to foot his bill for SIX MORE YEARS.
