    North Carolina is a national leader in conservative reform of state governance - a fact that, as you might expect, pleases conservatives and horrifies progressives in the Tar Heel State. Most of the praise or blame, respectively, is directed at the series of tax reforms and reductions the General Assembly has enacted almost every year since 2011, the budgetary restraint that has accompanied those tax cuts, the expansion of parental choice and school competition in North Carolina education, and changes to our unemployment insurance and public assistance programs.

    Aug 3, 2017 | The Robesonian

    I know many Democrats and progressives who continue to be frustrated by the conservative Republicans who have controlled the North Carolina General Assembly since 2010. The Left has spent years stating and restating its standard narrative about our state - that North Carolina has historically grown faster and been more successful than other Southern states because it was more willing to spend tax dollars on higher education, infrastructure, and other government programs.
