Ron Carlson: McCrory’s ‘values’

January 11, 2013 

‘Values’ trump needy

It is nice to see that Gov. Pat McCrory is holding up the “values” of compassionate conservatism of the GOP, by giving his cabinet an 8 percent raise. The GOP always talks about the left hindering prosperity but is willing to cut back on unemployment benefits while cutting taxes on the uber-wealthy!

The only people prospering from GOP policies are the already prosperous. How disappointing that it seems they only care about the rich and themselves!
