House Speaker Thom Tillis keeps repeating falsehoods about the budget over and over. It’s as if he is trying to convince himself that his now predictable, robot-like political defense of the budget is true. 

But it is not. The budget does not protect public schools, universities and community colleges as Tillis misleadingly claimed yet again in a weekend op-ed.

There are dozens of stories every day from across the state that prove otherwise, like this one featuring a reality check from community college leaders in western North Carolina.

It comes down to this.  You can believe the people who work with students every day or a political leader who keeps giving us the same stale, flimsy talking points.

It seems like an easy choice.
