This is what you do with bad legislation:

If they want to expand, they need to start by fixing their problems. But frankly, this "pilot" is about to crash that plane...

Is that for me? Because I don't respond well to all caps...

Don't waste your breath on Burr's social media posts, he probably doesn't write (or read) them.
Read my latest newsletter to learn how @NC_Governor is placing State budget funding for education, state employee pay raises, and disaster relief in a partisan standoff. #ncpol #ncgahttps://t.co/lX9QwDa4i2 pic.twitter.com/HgQ0TBYU8e

No, thank you. There's enough misleading propaganda out there to choke a horse. Here's an idea: Why don't you vote to override that Veto? One way or another, things will get moving again if you do.

Lol! Reverend Al has been throwing political punches for a long time. Best not to piss him off.
Repeating inaccurate talking points over and over doesn't make them truer. It merely means you've run out of substantive, accurate research to defend your position. #ncga #ncpol https://t.co/C3ja6esSxG

Hahahahaha! Sorry, but that's some turbo-charged irony right there...

Note "sponsored" and "advertisement." But it doesn't say who paid for it, which is kinda important. Because laws and such.
Rally point tells me that they have canceled ALL events that are tied to politics regardless of party.
Article names Defend UNC as the origin of the complaint but tweets first came from UNC Ph.D. student & 'antifascist' Lindsay Ayling. Same 1 from Silent Sam debacle.#ncpol https://t.co/YmgPokM0ak

Right, so it's the people who stood up against the promotion of Proud Boys (America's version of soccer hooligans) that are the "bullies," and not the Proud Boys themselves. Because being able to beat the shit out of people in the streets is freedom? Or something?
Not well known: if you are renewing your NCDL or non-operator ID online, changing your address, or replacing a lost license or ID you can register to vote online or change your voter address as part of the transaction. (this has been true since 2016) #ncpol

Pay attention, folks. If you move to a different street address (even next door), your voter registration needs to be updated. Doesn't matter if you're still in the same voting precinct, it still needs to be fixed.

Yeah, that's very Mark Walkerish...
The NCGOP is leaving rural hospitals behind by not expanding Medicaid.
Republicans would rather hold rural communities hostage than expand Medicaid (which, I remind you, we've already paid for).
Hey Republicans, people are dying.#ncpol https://t.co/qQyWuQqcRE

Yes, this is a huge problem, and expanding Medicaid is one (important) piece of the puzzle.
Republicans have one plan to pass a budget for NC- trying to bribe Democrats. After a month it’s clear their bribery plan has failed, they don’t have the votes. @NC_Governor has offered a fair compromise. Let’s work together on a #BetterBudget. #ncpolhttps://t.co/lHmUJk0o0P

That's about the gist of it. Every elected Representative (and Senator) wants to secure needed things for their particular District. It's kind of why they're there. But for every carrot Republicans offer Dems there's a stick in the background, and you can't play their game without eventually getting whacked.
On that preachy note, here's your Onion:

Maybe somebody should mention something to Trump about Russia not liking gerrymandering...
