Queen Aldona: It's not my fault!

Everything's great!

That's what Queen Aldona told her oversight committee. After getting slapped down by the feds for her disastrous management of NC's food stamp program, in which people who should have waited a few days ended up waiting months, Queen Aldona said she had it all fixed.

Except she didn't.

Wos told the Joint Legislative DHHS Oversight panel that only 520 cases remained in the queue statewide as of Tuesday, and officials were confident that the state could meet the March 31 deadline. Then, Guilford County officials notified DHHS early Wednesday of an additional backlog.

There's no question that Queen Aldona is in over her head. She's thoroughly incompetent. She should not only be fired, but also tarred and feathered and carried in a cart. By the SNAP recipients of North Carolina.

But all Pat knows is that she raised one helluva lot of money for him and other Republicans. And that overrides her incompetence.

Meanwhile, kids go hungry thanks to Pat and Aldona. But that doesn't count.

Something's gone wrong

Rep. William Brisson, D-Bladen, questioned the effectiveness of the training DHHS has provided to county workers statewide on NC FAST.

"Something's gone wrong somewhere," Brisson said.

Yeah. Pat appointed an incompetent political hack to run one of the state's most important agencies.

Something's gone wrong, all right.

Well ...

Leaders of the party which seeks to recast the former middle class as a collection of welfare queens and for decades has pushed to criminalize poverty, the McCrory/Wos/et al ... administration is I suspect not doing any of this out of incompetence. I see no compelling reason to believe they are actually unhappy with the outcome.

Good point

Aldona (and John Skvarla, too, for that matter) seem to be intent on putting their own agencies out of business.

We'll assert, though, that their intent to ignore the populace and serve corporate interests can still coexist with their incompetence.
