Questioning conventional wisdom
Chris Fitzsimon and Rob Schofield both challenge conventional wisdom in their commentaires.
The latest Fitzsimon File addresses the notion that the budget debate is just theatrics designed to scare people into a tax increase rather than a real discussion about services North Carolinian’s need and want.
The Weekly Briefing asks lawmakers to resist the simple conservative argument that ‘belt-tightening’ is all we need to solve the budget crisis. To illustrate his point, Schofield discusses how an ill-considered state Medicaid cost savings program unfairly deprived 9,000 deserving people of their insurance coverage.
