    who is (with his loyal rat pack of GOP state legislators) back at it again, and still trying to ram through more radical budget cuts to school funding, further restrictions of voting rights (again), getting rid of environmental laws and enforcement, and of course more anti-worker laws, along with trying to cut health care funding (again). Not at all humbled by the fact of his having to face a recall election, but emboldened since he managed to hang on in spite of it. And he's still considered a GOP 'rising star', although his actual political capital apex may have been reached, similar to Rep. Paul Ryan.  

    It's sort of a telling thing here that no other GOP 'leaders', governors (like Walker), or even media personalties are running down to help Jindal out and rescue that ALEC agenda for him. GOP must suspect average folks are finally onto their cloaked agenda to destroy the parts of government which actually work on their behalf.

      McCrory wants to phase out state income tax here in NC and is opposed by his (infamous) budget director Art Pope ( founder of the Locke Foundation).  

      Pope, who owns discount departments stores that sell shoddy goods to the poor, must fear that an increased sales tax will cut into his profits.  Last January,

      Art Pope, who was named last month as Gov. Pat McCrory's budget chief, said Wednesday that a push by Senate Republicans to eliminate North Carolina's income tax is misguided.

      Just because the government keeps a record of real property transfers, it doesn't mean that the government wants to confiscate your home.
