Gregory McGann: Making the case

Making the case

So Gene Nichol (March 21 Point of View) is upset that North Carolina Republicans, in charge for “the first time in modern history,” want to change course in the way the state is governed, even though, according to him, “we have among the highest poverty rates, the highest unemployment rates, the highest ‘food insecurity’ rates, the highest uninsured rates and the highest levels of income inequality in the nation.” Sounds to me like those results of 100+ years of Democratic rule would make the need for a new approach blindingly obvious.
