The Transylvania Times -

Please tell me it’s a joke. I can’t believe the North Carolina Senate thinks the best thing to do with the $663 million budget surplus is to mail a refund of $125 or $250 to North Carolina residents.

How much will it cost to research who merits the refund? The printing? The postage? Why not focus on raising teachers’ salaries? Or investing in school improvements? Or the infrastructure? Or expanding Medicaid? How dumb do they think we, their constituents, are?

It’s simply grand-standing.
