Guvnor McCraven, continuing his unsuccessful attempts to appear relevant, decided it was time to veto something again.
Gov. Pat McCrory has vetoed a bill tweaking the state's unemployment insurance law and the commission that makes final benefit decisions in appeals.
McCrory said in a statement Tuesday that he was unhappy with the legislature's changes to a three-member Board of Review, which he has the power to appoint.
As with his previous two vetoes from last session, Pouting Pat chose a relatively obscure bill that has broad support, and gave a really petty, nitpicking reason for vetoing it. Pat is upset because he appointed some of his cronies and now Tillisberger wants to boot those folks off the commission and have approval rights for future appointments.
As usual, the Blount Street House of Incompetence is squabbling with the Jones Street House of Pain over political power. And as usual, what's lost in their petty politics is any concern for the people they're supposed to represent -- in this case, unemployed North Carolinians, who remain screwed -- the law in question just slightly adjusts the degree.
