“a stunning display of contempt for democracy”

From the Raleigh News & Observer: “In a stunning display of contempt for democracy, House Speaker Tim Moore, a Cleveland County Republican, called a surprise vote to overturn Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget just after a session opened at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. Democratic lawmakers and the media had been told by Republican leaders that there would be no vote in the morning.”  Read the full editorial here.

    I am beyond upset that Tim Moore & his band of pirates hijacked the Democratic process and voted for to pass this sorry excuse of a budget! All the Democrat’s and any Republican w/ any sense of decency should demand the vote be withdrawn & voted on properly.
