The NC Budget Needs Your Help!

“Don’t tell me what you value, show me your budget, and I’ll tell you what you value.” – Joe Biden The North Carolina state budget is under review in the NC General Assembly, and this quote could not be more timely. After the North Carolina Senate passed a budget in less than 72 hours with no public scrutiny and limited debate (and at 3am, nonetheless!), it currently sits with the House. Word on the street is that there will be a vote early this week (Tuesday or Wednesday), so we want to make sure you have the information you...

Healthcare Feedback for Senator Burr

We saw this posted in one of the groups we follow on Facebook and thought it was a great call to action to share with a broader audience. Senator Burr’s office is currently soliciting input from constituents on the health care bill.

Beating the TrumpCare Blues

Got a TrumpCare hangover this morning? We’ve got a couple of remedies to hopefully make you feel a bit better.   Watch this video from Indivisible that aired live last night. The team did a great job in explaining the process this bill still has to go through before it becomes law. The pre-mature “celebration” that took place at the White House yesterday afternoon was not only really bad optics – yay! We are taking away healthcare from 24 million Americans! – but a serious case of putting the cart before the horse. (If you really want to get...
