The cover story for the May-June issue of the newspaper delves into the latest Civitas polls, which reveals a slight uptick for NC Republicans and fatigue over the Mueller Report.
Another important theme from the issue is the continued debate over Medicaid expansion, which looks to heat up into the summer during the budget debate. Civitas has been a leading opponent of expanding entitlements in North Carolina, preferring to focus on the need for limits to government growth and spending. Those policies will do more to lift citizens out of poverty so that the economy can continue to surge. North Carolina needs to promote policies that decrease the cost of health insurance instead of continuing to expand a program rife with problems and that will only add to the federal deficit and debt.
