The suckage begins in earnest.

Update: Here's the article:

Pope, Shanahan find place in McCrory cabinet

"Whether it's fair of not, he is one of the most polarizing political figures in North Carolina. And now he is writing a state budget for nearly 10 million people," said Chris Fitzsimon, a policy analyst and writer with the liberal N.C. Policy Watch. "It's shocking that a governor who claims he is trying to reach across the isle would make such an appointment."

Pope-funded Civitas has distributed a tax reform blueprint this week that would eliminate the individual income tax in favor of raising the sales tax and broadening the number of items and services to which sales tax applies. Fitzsimon question whether work like that by those think tanks will now become official McCrory administration positions.

2. You have got to be effin kidding.

I have to keep reminding myself that things have to get really bad for NC to change back. So I guess I should embrace the bad news and hope for more.

3. WHITE MAN TRANSFER THE TAX'S TO THE POOR

 

This just transfers who pays the most tax's. The middle class and poor will be SCREWED. Everyone has to pay a sales tax and it will be HIGH. In California gasoline is taxed and the money goes to the road repair. This tax will either break the people or their will a lean and mean government. I sure am glad this is NOT my state........
