NC lawmakers, unlike Perdue, demand reform

Thirty-five North Carolina state lawmakers are among a group of more than 1,000 state legislators from all 50 states that are asking Congress to pass meaningful health care reform that includes a public option.

The Progressive States Network put the group together that includes 25 members of the North Carolina House and ten members of the Senate. You read the list here by clicking on North Carolina in the list of states.

Governor Beverly Perdue was one of six Democratic governors who declined to sign a similar letter to Congress.

    Perdue’s office is now saying that she was out of the office when the letter came in but that she supports the points made by the other Guvs. Interesting.

    the unemployment crisis takes priority over ill defined ‘health care reform’ effort for millions of laid off Americans and their familes.

    Hey Show Us, FYI, the Dems don’t care about unemployment or healthcare. All they care about is increasing the number of wreched souls who are forced to suckle at the government teet to preserve their livelihood.
