Thom Tillis gets a new fig leaf

You're going to hear joyous news this week, as the Great Senate and House Compromise on Teacher Pay comes to fruition. There will be a token raise for teachers and fewer teaching assistants will be fired, all while destroying public education through reckless charter expansion and vouchers.

We'll be fifth from the bottom instead of rock bottom! Which means the whole process is nothing but a fig leaf, designed to cover Thom Tillis' and his magical private parts.


Magical private parts?


Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

It's obvious

That Tillis told Berger that he was not about to miss next week's ALEC meeting and he is late getting back to the campaign cash trail and it was time for Phil to call off his theatrical minions.

And the result could have been predicted weeks ago: completely unfunded middle-of-the-road teacher pay increase with no overt firing of TAs (but restrictions that could cause them to be fired anyway), and unspecified cuts to Medicaid, because the Senate insists that someone needs to experience more pain, so why not the poor, elderly and disabled?

All while ignoring the elephant dung in the room.

"I will have a priority on building relationships with the minority caucus. I want to put substance behind those campaign speeches." -- Thom Tillis, Nov. 5, 2014

budget is based in Faked Heritage Foundation Data !!

well one thing for sure..... They don't need to use any reports like the ones the state uses from the busted Right wing think tank Heritage Foundation to justify dropping the tax holiday in the first place among other (cough) tax reforms.

Busted! Heritage Foundation economist can only defend Kansas tax cuts by fabricating data LOL
remember that North Carolina used the same ALEC tax reform model that Kansaa did ...

"Privatize to profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.
