State Rep. Paul Stam’s June 3 letter, “ Inexcusable omission,” made some good points. We should be privy to all the facts and not a select few – nothing should be omitted. This is good advice, and I hope North Carolina can remember that our current Republican legislators have fallen victim to such omissions.
In case we have forgotten, they omitted several hundred thousand people from Medicaid expansion and affordable health care. They have omitted tens of thousands from unemployment insurance. They have omitted several hundred million dollars from the North Carolina state budget. They have omitted gays and lesbians from marriage. They have omitted fracking chemicals from full disclosure requirements. And they have omitted several hundred thousand from the voting process.
Indeed, we should not leave anything omitted. North Carolina deserves the full story.
