Remind us again, Mr. Speaker, WHY are we doing this?

From the latest Public Policy Polling survey in North Carolina:

“North Carolinians agree with Speaker Thom Tillis- they think gay marriage will be legal in the state 20 years from now. 45% think the state will have gay marriage a generation from now compared to 41% who think it will continue to be illegal.”

    Is it because not opposing Amendment One allows legislators to report back to their constituents who support it that this was the best the legislature could do?

    Seems to me that this legislature has punted on the hard issues facing the state, legislates under cover of darkness, and continues to violate every promise of open and transparency of government on which they campaigned.

    Where is the attention to jobs, the economy, the facts about education and finance, not the spin? Seems that the Republican response is to use wedge issues to maintain their ‘smoke and mirror’ style of governance.

    Oh, for the war on women by the North Carolina Democrat Party, how much was the settlement?

    The sexual harassment suit against Jay Parmley, executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party won’t help the cause any.
