[1]Here is something you might have missed in the Fayetteville Observer [2] recently that is a perfect example of the misguided budget decisions made by the General Assembly this year.

For some in Cumberland County, this could be a long, cold winter. The state has cut the amount of financial help it offers low income families with heating bills through the winter by 83 percent this year.

That might be a good question for Speaker Tillis at his next town hall, when he is finished talking about dividing and conquering people on public assistance.  What are people supposed to do this winter who can’t afford to heat their homes?
