Going after the Children of Lawmakers Goes Too Far; Jeffrey Moss Must Go
North Carolina State Director of Americans for Prosperity Dallas Woodhouse and Lee County chapter leader Lloyd Jennings today called for the immediate firing of Lee County School Superintendent Jeffrey Moss after he instructed the 3rd grade class of Representative Mike Stones daughter to write letters to Mr. Stone in opposition of the recently passed no tax increase state budget.
As first reported by WRAL and the Carolina Journal:
This week the General Assembly will be debating two important bills that if passed will help create jobs in North Carolina.
First, the North Carolina General Assembly will be debating an important bill that will create jobs by expanding credit options for North Carolina businesses and families.
Large banks and groups such as the A.A.R.P, N.A.A.C.P, and the AFL-CIO oppose this common-sense legislation so they can limit consumer options to their OWN high interest fee, high late fee, and credit cards.
Americans for Prosperity fully supports House Bill 810 and SB 761.

Civitas Poll: Voters Say Raise Taxes in 2011, Pay the Price in 2012
Raleigh, N.C. - Voters say they would be less likely to vote for a legislator in 2012 who voted for a tax increase. As the General Assembly finalizes the 2011-2012 budget proposal, a new poll released today by the Civitas Institute shows strong opposition to new taxes. The poll also found 75 percent of voters oppose a plan by Gov. Bev Perdue to raise taxes by $800 million dollars.
There will be a very important hearing on HB 188 (Taxpayer Bill of Rights) at the General Assembly tomorrow (Wednesday, May 25th) and we need as many activists in that committee room to support it, as possible.
AFP has promoted a Taxpayer Bill of Rights for years and this will be the first time we will actually see real consideration of this idea at the General Assembly.
