Detached indeed. From the NC Policy Watch article:
“We didn’t take away unemployment benefits,” McCrory said on WFAE’s “Charlotte Talks” program in response to a question about cuts to the unemployment insurance system. “We didn’t extend them. We were following the existing policy.”
“To say we didn’t reduce our core benefits, that’s not true,” said John Quinterno of the Chapel Hill-based South by North Strategies, which studies labor market issues, about McCrory’s comments. “There are cuts all over the place.”
Clueless idiot or deliberate liar, either way he is unfit for office.
