Oh.....you mean like the great spending job Beverly Purdue did. See below a short list of her prioritized spending. This was just for the fiscal year of 2009-2010.<quoted text>Yea, right!!! Like when they gave an ADDITIONAL $50,000 tax BREAK to each and every attorney in each and every law firm in the entire state of NC .
Refusing the money could be viewed as responsible IF the money had been applied to the national debt principal, but that will not happen. All it does is make NC poor the whipping boy for the republikans. That attitude is why they are the party of stupid. They are just being republikans, another word for assholes.
$1.1 million for the executive aircraft division
$10 million to subsidize in-state tuition for out-of-state scholarship athletes
$2.9 million for the North Carolina symphony
$11.1 million for “tourism, film and sport development”
$9.4 million for marine fisheries research
$4.7 million for a “special zoo fund,” a “grassroots initiative” sponsored by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and the “adopt-a-trail” program
$8.6 million for the NC Arts Council
$1.1 million for the botanical garden at UNC-Chapel Hill
$252,000 for the “cemetery commission”
$563,000 for the Ergonomics Center at N.C. State
Not mention that in the midst of a recession and one of the largest budget deficits in state history, lawmakers adopted $1.1 billion in new taxes in order to help balance the budget.
Are you kidding me. You don't raise the tax rate and hope that these politicians will spend the money where it should be spent. YOU REDUCE SPENDING!!!
There is no revenue problem, there is spending problem.
