The NC Senate: the only place you can walk out on your job without worrying about being fired

Apparently the term "at will" means something different to Republicans:

McCrory heaped praise on House Speaker Thom Tillis for calling teachers and superintendents to testify to the budget conference committee that is working out differences between the House and Senate, while lambasting senators for walking out of the room.

"I am disappointed that the Senate walked out on superintendents and teachers," McCrory said after meeting with his Education Cabinet at Shaw. "We need to listen to them, not walk out on them."

That's what you get when you've got a collection of playground bullies running the show in the Legislature. Declaring victory is more important than arriving at any kind of consensus, and the only sure thing you can count on is someone's going to get a wedgie.

Comments

Good ol' Pat

definitely has the moral high ground to make such comments, at least at his residence in Alternate Realityville.

After all, Guvnor McHypocrisy would never refuse to listen to public input, and of course he would never walk out on anyone.

Leave it to Pat to choose which bullies he'll side with.
