#DM7 Article: The Exploding NC Democrat Heads

This is reposting of my weekly Da Tech Guy column: The Exploding NC Democrat Heads

Question: On what planet do people complain about a $400 million surplus and paying off $2.8 billion in unemployment insurance debt that was racked up by a former governor?

A lot of heads, like that of the ‘Moral Monday’ crowd, must be exploding.  

‘Moral Monday’s’ main shtick has been to whose mission has been to call the Republican held Legislature “regressive”. That same crowd, along with Democrat legislators warned of gloom and doom befalling North Carolina. Gloom and doom like a predicted shortfall of $270 million did not come to pass.

Republicans say the swing to a surplus shows that GOP tax changes are working. The $400 million figure equates to about 2 percent of the state budget, putting it within a long-term 2.5 percent margin of error for each year’s revenue forecast.

A memo from legislative and administration officials said there was a “significant upswing” in April tax collections. The new, projected surplus is “predominately due to higher income tax payments and lower refunds from the 2014 tax year,” according to the report. – Charlotte Observer

The lion’s share of that surplus seems to be coming from “strong growth in business income“. Yes, there seem to be many complaints from the NC Democrats, but I think this is the unsaid complaint that rings true:
