The very latest in Republican negligence:

This is Trumpcare by the numbers; people with pre-existing conditions are losers and don't deserve good coverage.
interesting age statistic:
19 year olds! are currently leading turnout among under 35 voters in NC (3230)
23 year olds are the lowest at 2091
BUT, 71 year olds blow everyone away at 15,131.#Millennials, grab a friend, GO VOTE!#NCPOLhttps://t.co/vNKla5bCCu pic.twitter.com/tkeNtDsRln

And this is the root to many of our problems. If human beings were complex information gathering systems with no data limitations, the longer they were in operation, the more informed they would be. But we're not. We forget the things we should remember, and remember things that never happened, and we wrap it all up with ego-centric emotions. Not a recipe for wise governing.
Local governments who have consistently criticized the #NCGA for involving itself in local issues are now passing the buck to the state when faced with a tough regulatory and political issue. Elect leaders as city councilors, not followers. #NCPOL #ralpol https://t.co/o0SEkjiZz1

Let me rephrase that for you, Brent: "Continual efforts by Republicans to stifle efforts by municipalities to regulate businesses, combined with constant rhetoric about imaginary "free market" benefits to society, have led to private companies not even asking permission to operate in the public sphere." Much better.
Incumbent N.C. Supreme Court Justice is probably going to lose her seat, and her own political party is at fault. The result if that happens? 5-2 majority for Dems on the court through 2022: https://t.co/I9mDlY2S1x #ncpol

Funny how these things come back to haunt you, isn't it?
And it will be even funnier when this comes back to haunt Barbara Jackson:
A sitting #NC supreme court justice's re-election campaign is going off the partisan deep end with right-wing attacks on immigrants, other judges, and even George Soros! Just another reason we need to elect @earls4justice to replace this hack.https://t.co/lF53RtKgAQ #ncpol

Aaaand, Barbara Jackson just broke Paul Newby's record for jerkiness in a Supreme Court race. Also, "Hey, Ruby!" :)
.@LindaForNC takes it to Holding for supporting the tax giveaway to the rich that we're all paying for: "I would never cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to make up for" the enormous new debt we now have. #NC02 #ncpol pic.twitter.com/nmaJjyOqaj

What Linda said. And while Republicans are putting on the sad Kabuki performance about being "forced" to cut these programs, Trump is making noises about another damn tax cut, right before the election. We need to be talking about looming cuts to Medicare, every single day up to and including Nov. 6th.
At end of @CityOfHighPoint candidates forum gets testy when issue of #PhotoID comes up - @NCGOP candidates get somewhat defensive about accusations of how widespread voter fraud is in #NC #US #ncpol #Election2018

Of course they got testy, because they know it's a manufactured crisis.
This may be the most ridiculous campaign flyer by @RepDavidRouzer. It’s so stupid, it’s laughable. He can’t run on his own merits, so he uses all the “triggers” for his base. Be smarter. Vote @drkyle4congress! #NCPol #FlipNC07 donate here https://t.co/5lEcdtYvfF pic.twitter.com/oOKPd0R6oK

Good lord. Republicans like Rouzer will use whatever innuendo they can to stay in power. Kyle Horton has more honor and integrity in her pinky finger than Rouzer has in his entire body...

Yeah, that's right on the verge of being White Supremacist propaganda. Not just the difference in shade of the two hands, but also with trigger words like "Globalist."

Evidence? We're talking about Trump, dude. Things like evidence and proof only get in the way of a good narrative.

Roger that. Now it's just a bunch of individual parents "shopping" for their particular child's education, and the rest of the children are left alone on the streetcorner. Public schools are the very last place the "free market" should be allowed to touch, but Republicans are rolling out the red carpet. Grrr.
On that infuriating note, here's your Onion:

Yes, they most certainly have.
