Really? Can you offer up any proof of this or is it another talk-radio lie?

Health care for veterans and civilians and education facilities are not a Taylor versus Shuler issue. I am sure that both gives these and other proframs priority.
Taylor did have more seniority than Shuler whuch caused some programs to be delayed when Shuler was elected.
Taylor was doing a lot to get a school of engineering at WNC - there were many others and I suppose Shuler will carry on with the programs.
Shuler does not have the clout that Taylor did.

Anyone newly elected has to get started somewhere on both the old and new legislation. This writer just didn't have anything remotely interesting to do the day she wrote this specious letter.

Not the clout, nor the illegal activities and arrogance.

I wrote charlie more than 50 letters, and I NEVER RECEIVED A LETTER BACK.

I did receive "These issues are important to me and I will get back to you soon." Via email

Charles Taylor was a dishonest individual and I say good riddance.
