Watch the sausage get ground this morning
If you haven’t had the pleasure of watching the folks now running the North Carolina General Assembly in action (like House Finance Committte co-chair Rep. Mitch Setzer - pictured at left) and have a little time at mid-morning today, check out WRAL.com at around 9:15. You’ll get to see what it looks and sounds like when a committee with 50 or so members tries to digest and amend a 68 page bill that will impose the most draconian cuts in unemployment insurance in modern U.S. history — all in about an hour and a half.
Who knows? Maybe they’ll even let members off the public speak for a minute or two each before they jam the thing through on a voice vote.
