Dumb and dumber?

The Senate budget proposal came out last night and. if it’s possible, appears to do an even worse job (at least at first blush) of funding public schools than the House version. Senate leaders apperar to have a press conference scheduled for 9:30 with more details.

Check back at NC Policy Watch throughout the day for more updates and analysis.

    Excellent post Sundance. This is just another prime example of corporate efforts to privatize public wealth and the grim truth that one political party, ( and one only), the republican, has broken the ethic of responsibility, that in the past, governed thinking and behavior in regards to public policy. Legislation like this should scare the hell out of us, but the people who support it are scarier still. If you listen to their message, they only talk about how things are broken, how we must undo, destroy, tear down, and go back, never about building or going forward.

    This legislature is “Back-room” serious. Of course some republicans are pawns, as this story says, dumb, but others are leading the pack and they will destroy education as we know it, our water and air and anything else of importance for the almighty dollar and continued power.
