Tillis shines shoes in Washington, DC; or does he?

I once heard a guy tell me that if Naw'th Carolina didn't get "this" Medicaid problem under control, Thom Tillis would be toast. He said he was a Republican; we were sitting at a bar in Raleigh, and I bought him a beer.

I keep wondering about all of those trips Thom Tillis has been taking to Washington, DC. You know, the ones he claims and has been reported as fund raising raiding. Even minor league Republicans (those that descend from the trees at dusk) and are from rural North Carolina, despise him. He surely doesn't give a damn about them; never did, never will.

In doubling a no-bid contract to $6.8 million, the state Department of Health and Human Services has turned over the financial management of North Carolina’s $13 billion Medicaid program to a Washington-area consulting firm.

Recently released contract documents spell out how Alvarez & Marsal is running the day-to-day financial operations of Medicaid, developing budgets, managing cash and contracts, and preparing reports for the legislature and governor.

That's not shine

It's not even shinola.

But quite a few people mistake it for that.
