Spot the logical fallacy in this argument:
Leading up to the recession, many states cut the employment taxes that support the trust funds, leaving them ill-equipped to deal with the growth in joblessness that followed.
“I will not outsource these tough decisions,” McCrory said. “This bipartisan solution will protect our small businesses from continued over-taxation (and) ensure our citizens’ unemployment safety net is secure and financially sound for future generations.”
That's right. Not only did he fail to mention the tax cuts that brought about this current debt problem, McCrory's reference to "continued over-taxation" is an attempt to rewrite history to a version where those tax cuts never happened. Figuring out whether this attempt is intentional or not will only serve one purpose: to determine if we have a liar or an idiot for a Governor. There is no third option.
