To hear Moral Monday disciples tell it, our state is the most regressive, most evil, most backwards and greedy state… EVAH!
Yeah, things sure are dire here in the Tarheel state.
A few days ago, our state became the 9th state with over 10 million people in it. Yep, we’re one of the fastest growing states on the East coast and a lot of the people coming here are from liberal, blue state New York. Go figure!
Another piece of just awful news, North Carolina’s tax plan is so ‘bad’ that democrat governors are copying it.
Via the Washington Business Journal:
“When it comes to corporate tax rates, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe doesn’t look to Maryland or the District — he instead holds his state up to North Carolina.
“McAullife told me his proposal to lower Virginia’s corporate tax rate in 2017 to 5.75 percent from 6 percent was a direct response to North Carolina’s effort to lower its corporate tax rate from 6.9 percent in 2013 to 6 percent in 2014 and then to 5 percent in 2015…
“Scott Drenkard, the director of state projects at the Tax Foundation, said Virginia has traditionally competed with Maryland and the District when it comes to tax rates and economic development, but the rapid and dramatic series of tax changes in North Carolina is making it the state to emulate.
“That reform — which has also included North Carolina lowering and simplifying individual income taxes — has helped attract financial services and manufacturing jobs to the state and made it a destination for corporations looking to expand…”
JEEZ! The. Horror.
Moral Monday is pissed I bet.
They’ve been protesting for “climate justice” and “social justice” and “economic justice” and “wage justice” and “medicaid justice”… yeesh.
You get the idea, right?
Basically just slap the liberal cause du jour in front of the word ‘justice’ and you have yourself a Moral Monday protest theme.
The Left always screams about how it wants religion out of politics, unless it suits their religion of liberalism.
