As we honor President John F. Kennedy today, Bob Rucho tarnishes JFK's memory by repeating the currently fashionable right-wing talking point that JFK was actually a conservative -- but Bob goes so far as to say that JFK would have founded the tea party.
JFK could have been the founder and leader of the Tea Party. The real democrat party has been hijacked.
Rucho said the taxpayer-funded trip includes Republicans and Democrats. The North Carolina delegation is expected to depart North Carolina at 1 p.m. Wednesday and attend meetings at the Downtown Marriot in Little Rock. The group will visit the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality on Thursday and then travel Friday to Southwestern Energy’s operations in Conway.
Their host company is being sued for contaminating people's water in Pennsylvania. That company, of course, advised NC's fracking commission.
“Early in person voting is a substantial improvement in voting that Americans of all political persuasions should be able to agree upon,” the report said. “Its widespread and growing use by voters, and the uniform view of the election officials we interviewed, confirms it provides ample benefits for both voters and election administrators.'”
Senator and village idiot Bob Rucho debunks the study, though, and for a very good reason:
State Sen. Bob Rucho, a Republican from Mecklenburg County, on Friday defended North Carolina’s change in a comment to an online version of this story:

Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg, complained that McCrory hasn’t named an independent Unemployment Review Board to review decisions on unemployment benefits made by the state Division of Employment Security.
“The General Assembly wouldn’t have taken action if we didn’t think it was important,” Rucho said. “You are expected to follow the law. The governor is expected to follow the law. We’ll have to take some action” to address the issue.
Considering many of the appointments DAG McCrory has already made, it might be better for the Legislature to empanel this Board itself. Never thought I would say that...

They apparently can't get their story straight. While some of them are saying they were trying to comply with the VRA by stacking black voters into certain districts, others are saying race wasn't even mentioned:
She says North Carolina got itself into this mess by giving tax breaks to employers, and argues that it's unfair to fix the situation "solely on the backs of the unemployed." But Republican Sen. Bob Rucho says "there were no easy solutions" for dealing with a debt to the federal government in excess of $2.5 billion. He says his plan will allow the state to pay off its debt to Washington three years earlier, while also building up a billion-dollar trust fund for the next recession.
I got news for you, Einstein: when the foreclosures start rolling in from all the families who are financing your heartless scheme, the housing market will crash again, and the next recession will be here before you can replace the batteries in your calculator. But don't listen to me, why not ask some of your real estate buddies?
