In the wake of Governor Perdue's Veto of HB 383, which tied extending unemployment benefits for 37,000 jobless North Carolinians to a draconian Continuing Resolution that would result in thousands more North Carolinians losing their jobs, the next logical and compassionate step would be to separate those two conflicting policies so those 37,000 folks could get relief.
But as you can see (hear) from this presser, Republicans have no desire to do the right thing. Paraphrased:
"We sent a bill to the Governor...the next step is up to her or five Democrats in the House to override."
