Watch the sausage get ground this morning

Mitch Setzer [1]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 [2] - pictured at left) and have a little time at mid-morning today, check out WRAL.com [3] 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 [4] — 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.
