Small governments crippled by proponents of small government:
The measure to eliminate the land transfer tax option headed to Gov. Beverly Perdue's desk after the Senate approved it 40-8. The House approved it earlier this month.
"What we're trying to do is to eliminate a bill that's a potential (obstacle) to affordable housing," Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg, said during the brief debate.
Which overlooks the glaringly obvious: If the Hometicks can afford to contribute hundreds of thousands to candidates and spend millions here and there on ballot battles, I'd say the "affordable housing" mystery has been solved.
