Are North Carolina Democrats Against Jump-starting the Economy, Teacher Pay, and the Military?
Raleigh, N.C. — Sure does seem like it.
Over the past month, the actions of Senate Democrats raised serious questions as to whether they’re for or against everyday North Carolinians.
Time and again they’ve voted against opportunities to reopen businesses safely that have been arbitrarily shuttered by Gov. Roy Cooper. They’ve voted against nearly $500 million in additional funding for the state’s Medicaid program, which provides care to the state’s most vulnerable patients. They’ve voted against teacher pay raises and bonuses.
They voted against Second Amendment protections and safely allowing hospital visitors during states of emergency. They voted against funding to help stabilize the state’s military presence, including grant funding for local communities or military installations. Democrats even voted against celebrating Independence Day.
Don’t believe us? Their votes speak for themselves. Take a look.
