We thought we saw the shape of things to come in that Revenue Laws Committee meeting on Jones Street earlier this week. The meeting featured a presentation from the UNC School of Government bemoaning how tough things are financially for local governments. It clearly looked like the table was being set to wheedle a bailout out of the “honorables.”
We would hope that our “conservative revolutionaries” in Raleigh would use this opportunity to press the point about self-sacrifice before going to the citizenry and asking them to sacrifice even more. I want to see ANY of them say with a straight face that there is nothing to cut.
Watch your wallets, folks. (While you’re at it, keep an eye on your “honorable,” as well.)
