Insured lawmakers

It’s a very noble thing the Republicans in North Carolina are doing; hundreds of millions of dollars that could have come here will instead go to other states.

Just one thing stands in the way of our Republican leaders being Nobel Prize-worthy: They need to sign a pledge that they will henceforth deny themselves and their families any government-paid health insurance, like they have denied it to 500,000 other Tar Heels.
