Where's The Beef?

Better Yet... Where's The Money?

My opponent keeps railing about having a majority that will reprioritize spending in North Carolina. There is a limited amount of income in the form of revenue produced by individuals and businesses that the state is given to spend. There is no additional pot of money available. I challenge him and anyone else out there to tell me in this summary of state spending exactly WHAT we are supposed to stop spending on so we can get teacher's further raises, build affordable housing, expand Medicaid, etc.

All of the spending ideas from Democrats are GOOD. They really are what is best for our citizens. We ALL want children cared for with a good education, a decent meal and a roof over their head. That would be ideal. We cannot deficit spend to achieve it. North Carolina finally paid back some of its long-term debt so we are not constantly paying interest on debt for overspending which occurred many years ago.

A Living Wage is a fallacy, a falsehood and can never help the poor. In fact, it harms them.

I took law courses as well as my opponent, but what he doesn't know is product development and how companies function. He has never owned or operated a business which is what state government regulates. He has ZERO experience and little knowledge of economics. Allow me to explain:

When you work for a company, say you are paid $12 to bake bread loaves. You want a raise to $15. The owner says they cannot afford it. Remember, your needs and desires are balanced against the entire company's balance sheet, every other employee, and every competitor they have in the marketplace. 

When the government steps in, as they have in Venezuela, and says you must raise salaries, companies must comply. In Venezuela 40% of all business closed overnight when salary hikes were enforced. Unemployment skyrocketed.

Here is what would happen in the North Carolina:

Here we go again.

Another run for the State Senate, and now we have a newcomer, Mujtaba Mohammed, a young lawyer who has no business experience whatsoever versus my 30+ years in business. While his heart is in the right place, he seems to miss the point of HOW to create higher income for all citizens, HOW to raise people out of poverty, HOW to create an equitable justice system, and HOW to build affordable housing.

Before I tell you WHY my opponent is another disaster, please READ the chart (click READ MORE). In 2010, the Democrats had control of North Carolina for 138 years. And we had among the lowest standards. They had several generations to get things right, and they didn't, so what makes anyone think now they will magically empower people in North Carolina? In the few years Republicans have the state house North Carolina's rankings have shot up in every positive direction possible. 

I would like to address the main concerns that Mr. Mohammed has touted as important for our district. Better yet, I will tell you HOW I intend to fix these things:
