NC TV Commercial On Educational Budget Cuts Blaming Republicans is a Lie!!!

There is a commercial on TV attacking the North Carolina Republican Legislature for the Budget Cuts and their effect on Education. The ad claims the Republicans refused to extend the sales tax The truth is not being told. The 1 penny sales tax was passed by the Democrats and was scheduled to sunset this year as promised by the Governor and the then Democratic Legislature.

When the Budget hit the NC Senate, the Democrats were asked if they wanted to extend the 1 penny sales tax by amending the Budget.  They were told the money could be used to support Education. The NC Senate Democrats voted against the amendment. That is something you will not read in the MainStream Media.

2012 is coming!!!
