NC Speaker Tillis: Divide and Conquer! (Moms, kids and people in wheelchairs)

NC Speaker of the House Thom Tillis has a novel idea to take the heat off Republicans for his billion-dollar-a-year cuts to the NC Medicaid program.

    Just think about this: In 1930, the Jews in Germany didn’t know what horrors the Republicans, er Nazis were going to unleash upon them.
