When Republicans announced the Veto override vote would be Wednesday, were they already planning to do it right after the stroke of midnight? Via Twitter:
binker 6:59pm via HootSuite #ncga House Speaker Tillis says that a 12:01 a.m. session to over-ride the @ncgovoffice budget veto is possible. Will let us know by 9 p.m.
And my next question is, was the Party of Five aware of this deceitful little trick? If they weren't, they need to recognize this stunt for what it is: Straight-up dishonesty. As such, these five Democrats, and maybe a few honest Republicans to boot, should reverse their votes. A Budget that requires trickery to get passed is, by its very nature, something that demands another look. A long look.
