Judge orders halt to state cuts in services to people with disabilities

Someday, let’s hope our state progresses to the point at which advocates for low-income disabled people no longer have to take state officals to court to get orders like this one that was issued today by conservative Republican Terrence Boyle.

    Could we ask for more proof of Tillis and Berger’s ignorance and ineptness? Lanier Cansler, a Republican who warned the NCGOTP of what would befall those with disabilities based on their missguided budget, being hauled into court by a Republican judge to face the music composed by his bretheren. It would be funny, if it weren’t such any indictment of their failed ideology. I’ve really reached a level of disgust with the leadership of this assembly that I thought was impossible.
