RALEIGH – As we anticipate
Governor King Roy Cooper’s decision on whether or not the citizens of North Carolina will be allowed to move to Phase Three of his reopening plan, the Majority Leader of the NC House, John Bell (R-Wayne), is pointing out that his isn’t a ‘plan’ at all. Instead, it is an entire state held hostage to the public relations whims and political pandering of one man that has exploited emergency powers to drag out a socio-economic disaster.
Cooper is picking winners and losers, using fear to exercise authority in ways that would make our Founding Fathers roll in their graves. Lawmakers actually felt obligated to pass a bill protecting citizens’ rights to celebrate Independence Day freely; Cooper is expected to veto it.
‘Where is the plan?!‘ asked Bell on the House Floor this week.
