Tubby little guy seeks cover for himself AND his Medicaid-expanding RINO pals
With visions of DC dancing in his large misshapen head, speaker Timmy twisted arms super-hard last week to get his caucus onboard with expanding Medicaid. At least, that’s what some of my Jones Street moles have told me. In fact, here’s one now:
“He got in each of our faces and told us we needed to bite the bullet and vote for it. He said he did not want this bill to pass with all Democrat votes and a handful of Republicans. He said he wanted the names of a lot of Republicans in the ‘yea’ column along with all of those Democrats.
Moore also said the state is going to get big money from the feds once we expand the system. Money from the feds? Where does he think they get their money?
The speaker said we might as well just vote for it, because it’s going to pass with or without us.
This bill that passed is exactly what Roy Cooper wanted. Why give that man what he wants? What kind of opposition party are you if you cave in to the Democrat governor at the drop of a hat? The Democrats would never do something like this for a Republican governor. Never.
By voting for this travesty, we’re getting absolutely nothing to show for it. Roy Cooper is going to look like The Man. “
There are a total of 71 Republicans in the North Carolina House.
Only 22 House Republicans were brave enough to resist Tubby Lil’ Timmy’s arm-twisting. They were: Adams; Balkcom; Biggs; Blackwell; Brody; Cairns; Elmore; Howard; N. Jackson; Johnson; Kidwell; Loftis; Riddell; Saine; Setzer; C. Smith; Strickland; Torbett; Tyson; Warren; Willis; Zenger.
If any of these legislators represent you, be sure you thank them for their courage to resist the tubby one and stand with the people who sent them to Raleigh.
(Thank you, Neal Jackson.)

Note the rapidity with which this Democrats’ wet dream was passed, Note how everything of meaning to the Republican voters is slow walked or watered down to a shell of itself. Note how no one, even those who stood by the base, has pointed out that this bill has zero reform loaded into it and that Medicaid will fund demonic ‘gender affirming care’ (reminds me of where-is-he Ted Budd who could never articulate that the Dems’ abortion goal is on demand, anytime in and after the 9 mos gestational period).
All of this bullcrap proves once and for all that Republicans are our enemies and when they actually WANT to get something done, they CAN. And fast.
No party has EVER betrayed its voters so flagrantly, so despicably. The enemy truly is WITHIN.
Modern day Democrats are the party of treason. The GOPe is the party of treachery. There’s not much difference between the two – two sides of the same coin.
I can’t wait for the primary against Traitor Timmy for that Congressional seat he drew for himself. His miserable record of selling out to the special interests and the Democrats should be front and center in his defeat. It is what the military would call a target rich environment – men in the ladies restrooms and locker rooms, green new deal, Obamacare Medicaid expansion (welfare state), etc. Timmy Moore is a Democrat in Drag and a whore for the special interests.
And those 47 spineless RINOs who knuckled under to vote for this far left garbage? EVERY ONE of them deserves a primary from a conservative. Throw the bums O-U-T ! They betrayed the Republican base and do not deserve to be occupying the peoples’ legislative seats.
And notice how quick ole Coop was in DC mtg w/ Joey?
Guess he was pronouncing he has the GA wrapped up.
Thanks, I WON’T EVER forget.
Is the NC gop not patterned precisely like that on capitol hill? Dems win and win and win and even when gop wins, it’s b/c the dems wanted them to….
The heck with this party.
Speaker Moore will move to Congress in ‘24 and John Bell or Destin Hall will become Speaker. Read the tea leaves.
Is the gop not back to the shenanigans that destroyed the super majority and found some in criminal activity?
The NC gop is rotten to the core.
The Third District Republican Executive Committee unanimously passed a resolution opposing the Obamacare Medicaid expansion and communicatd it to our legislators. Some of our legislators voted with their party faithful, and some abandoned us. We now know who listens to the folks back home and who does not. I am sure many party activists will be taking that into account in future elections, and I strongly suspect that some of those legislators who abandoned us will be seeing this issue pop up in political ads in the future. They made their bed, so they can lie in it. Sadly, the people of North Carolina will now have to deal with their boondoggle.
I struggle to obide by Reagan’s 80/20.
The way things are going in Raleigh these days is giving me a lot of discomfort about not being there to keep fighting this garbage. Unfortunately, I had to leave the NC House in December because I had promised I would only serve five full terms. The whole idea of expanding Medicaid to people 133% above the poverty level is ludicrous on the face of it. The bill that couldn’t get passed last year, while I was still there, included a provision for dropping the program if the federal government stopped giving the State money for it. In an email I sent to all Republicans in the NC House and Senate just before my last term expired in December, I pointed out what nonsense it would be to pass an expansion bill when they had to include that provision knowing that the federal government has repeatedly withdrawn the 90% support after about three years. There are other problems with the idea, clearly reported to the committee studying the matter by witnesses from other States who had to deal with Medicaid expansion, such as the Biden administration disallowing work requirements. I not only sent that email pointing out these things to the members at that time, I also posted it on my Facebook page. Please feel free to look that up and share it here, if you wish. And please, all who read this, demand of the Republican majority that this foolish idea be dropped. Thank you to all members of the NC House who voted no.
Let’s face it. Many of those who claim to be Republicans in the General Assembly are actually Democrats-in-Drag (DIDs), not real Repubicans, and Tim Moore and Phil Berger are the queens of the Democrats-in-Drag. We know who they are by how they vote and we need to get rid of these poseurs in the primaries, and if they make it to the general election, withhold our votes from them. They are no better than the Democrats who openly admit what they are.
This is not the first rodeo for the Democrats-in-Drag. They have been giving leftwinger Roy Cooper the key things he wanted before, like the Green New Deal (HB951) and boys in the girls restrooms and locker rooms (repeal of HB2).
Tim Moore and Phil Berger are just Nancy Pelosi without the skirt (and who knows with the way they behave, they may actually wear the skirt, too). There are too many phonies like them in the “Republican” caucus. Calling the Berger / Moore clown carnival “Republican” is insulting to real Republicans.
