Gordon Uscier: Credit for time served

January 23, 2014 

So President Obama comes to Raleigh to promote a federal and business joint venture at N.C. State University to “spark the technology and research that will create the new industries, the good jobs.” Gov. Pat McCrory says it’s great and hopes it helps create jobs in North Carolina.

And Renee Ellmers, a member of our most obstructionist, do-nothing Congress, just worries that Obama might get credit for the North Carolina upswing. We would be happy to give her and the rest of Congress credit if they actually came up with an idea to help promote jobs and the economy. Heck, I’d even be happy to give them some credit just for being in session about half the year, which would be a big improvement over the 159 days in session in 2013.
