In a few years , when the feds stop the program, then NC would have to pick up the cost after that time. That is the only quasi reasonable explaination for the refusal.

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.

I agree that the free phones carry the nanny state thing too far.
The legislature refusing the federal money has nothing to do with the phones.
The NC legislature refusing the federal money DOES NOT SAVE THE USA ONE CENT because it will be spent somewhere else. Refusing the money does hurt NC and it does eliminate money that our hard pressed poor people could certainly use to good benefit. Refusing the money and hurting only our own citizens does not hurt democrats or Obama. It does illustrate the republikan mentality or should I say, the lack thereof. Its the same kind of thinking that would motivate Caldwell republikans to give out millions of free money to millionaires and then throw a poor hungry child's school lunch in the trash because she was 10 cents short of being able to pay. <quoted text>
Who are the mega buck people you are speaking of, I need those guys to come into the store. I have never seen any "million" dollar people. I thought they all went broke in Caldwell Co. and closed up shop.

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.

$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.

Specifically,for instance, I am talking about the CEO of Broyhill (FBI), Jeff Cook, who got $2,000,000 of the $4,000,000 given to Broyhill, compliments of taxpayers and their ass kissing commsssioners.

Unfortunately,most of the "entitlements" ARE about making the rich richer.$1,200,000,000,000 (that is 1.2 trillion ) total last year went to entitlements for the rich while $800 billion total went to the poor. For the math challenged, a few thousand rich persons got 50% more welfare from the government than the sum total of over 40 million poor.
I agree that we can no longer afford these entitlements, especially those to the rich.

Cutting entitlements isn't about making the rich richer, that's absurd. It's about taking the power away from govt and putting it back into the hands of those that need help and allowing them to use that power to rise from poverty.

Damn fugly flabby, someone got ripped off allowing the idiot to loiter around for a quarter century. Hey fat bitch, the number 25 does match your retard's IQ and the amount of tons you weigh.

Naturally, I would not expect a republikan to recognize that the spending you listed helps all people in the state while the tax breaks for lawyers helps only individuals.

Not really blame, just realism. Republikans are the party of stupid and corruption. So who is surprised when they are corrupt and stupid? Oh, you are one of them? It figures.

Isn't this the story of when dumbass commissioners gave a total of $4 million to Broyhill when they threatened to move the company? After the money was received they laid workers off most of the workers and basically gutted the business.

How does $1.1 million for the UNC botanical garden help everyone in the state? That is quite the broad brush you paint with.
