You have to give House Speaker Thom Tillis credit. He remains vigilant in not letting the facts interfere with his talking points.

The Salisbury Post reports that Tillis told a town hall meeting yesterday that he wanted to know about specific cases of teachers or teacher assistants being laid off, because that is not what the General Assembly intended when they slashed the public schools budget.

The Department of Public Instruction reports that 534 teachers and 1,260 teacher assistants have been laid off this year because of the Republican budget. That is a lot of specific cases that Tillis needs to deal with.
