RALEIGH, N.C.: McCrory signs bill that affects hospital billing, state employee rules | Business |

That is a blatant mis-characterization and misrepresentation of the facts. Did you expect the Governor to veto his parties legislation, particularly one giving him more flexibility in dealing with you, state employees?

I suppose if it doesn't suit you, then it's right wing extremism.

What is extreme, stupid, cruel and out of touch with most North Carolinians, are career state employees. Lack of accountability for tens of millions of dollars of waste annually is business as usual.

When state government cleans up it's act, and starts to behave responsibly with the tax payers $$, then I'll start worrying about whether the grievance process is too long or too short, and how many exempt positions there are.

I, for one, am tired of hearing state employees whine about how tough they have it. Most of the budget goes toward salaries, which yields a low ROI for taxpayers and a looming financial crisis for the State Health Plan.


There's no question there's no accountability in state government, from the top down. Getting elected and staying there is their only priority. Not what they're going to do when they get there.

The lack of accountability was exacerbated by the culture of corruption which permeated state government beginning with Bob Scott and ending with Bev Purdue.

Perhaps the best we can hope for from this legislature is a lack of corruption. We've seen the national influence of party politics on both sides. I would like to see North Carolina distance itself from those agendas. The GA scored big this legislative session with a number of critically important issues. The fight is not over, and the biggest seems to countering an out of control federal bureaucracy, one that has damaged the housing market causing the Global Financial Crisis and now seems poised to damage the labor market even further.
