Did we suddenly go back in time 10 years?
Based on the $1.3 Billion dollar NC House budget expansion, it looks like liberals are back in control of the state House.
The House budget includes:
- $200 thousand dollars for a baseball tournament in the speaker’s district
- $2.5 million for a group that was part of the moral Monday protests organizers
- Spending increases on at least five Civitas Waste of the Week items
- Over $100 million in tax credits and tax breaks for special interests
All this comes out of the wallets of hardworking North Carolinians.
The House budget increases spending next year by over five percent while population and inflation have grown by less than 3%.
When voters elected conservative legislators, they thought they were putting the brakes on runaway spending. It looks like they are just getting more of the same.
