Harold Johnson: Payback for GOP

March 23, 2013 

Payback for GOP

Every day in The News & Observer, there are articles about the new Republican majority legislature proposing or approving bills that will benefit the wealthy and business community. It’s no secret that most Republicans are wealthy, and it’s no secret that these bills are pointed in that direction.

With Republicans controlling both houses in the N.C. legislature, it’s useless to think that any Democratic discussion or opposition would be given any serious consideration. The legislature had been under the control of the Democrats since Reconstruction, and I guess you could say for the Republicans it’s payback time.

How long will it last is anybody’s guess, but I don’t think it will be as long as some might think.
