“Governor Cooper has done nothing but illustrate his lack of ability and understanding for the position which he currently holds. We have been given a troubling glimpse into his governorship, which includes lobbying for illegal legislation and appointing individuals who have issues in their background that raise questions about their qualifications. Thankfully, I have faith in our General Assembly to do what is best for North Carolina and her people, even if our governor won’t.” – NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes
Cooper’s real agenda consists of an agenda very different from what he is presenting. On the first day of session, he was already preparing obstacles so the North Carolina General Assembly would not able to pass tax cuts for middle class families and small businesses. Republican leaders have passed massive tax cuts during the past four years, and to do away with those cuts would result in sky rocketing tax increases for all North Carolinians. Republican leaders also gave public school teachers the largest pay raise in North Carolina history last year, and they have already committed to raising teacher pay to $55,000 WITHOUT raising taxes.
Cooper named Medicaid as a top priority– specifically expanding Medicaid. Just in case he and his entire team missed the memo, a federal judge issued a restraining order on Cooper’s attempt to change the State Medicaid Plan and expand the government healthcare plan under Obamacare (North State Journal). Since the judge’s ruling, Cooper’s has shown his complete incompetence as a public leader by continuing to pursue something that is illegal.
Governor Cooper has been under scrutiny for a number of his cabinet appointments. Along with naming lobbyists for various positions, he also chose Michael Regan to run the state Department of Environmental Policy. Some groups have gone so far as to accuse Regan of being “radical,” citing that Regan will put the metro areas like Raleigh and Charlotte ahead of the agricultural concerns of farmers and landowners in North Carolina.
Most concerning of Governor Cooper’s appointments is Ken Eudy as his Senior Advisor. Eudy is widely known for disrespecting our troops. He has gone on the record about how he stays in his seat during the national anthem, saying, “I sit simply because I think it odd that, of all the categories of Americans that we honor, we honor warriors.”
As of noon yesterday, the General Assembly is in session. We encourage each member and constituent to voice their opinion and continue to stand up against Governor Cooper and his ridiculous policy propositions.
Representative Destin Hall Cordially invites you to the swearing-in ceremony for the 87th district, January 17. The event will begin at 5:30pm, in Courtroom 5 of the Caldwell County Courthouse. Justice Paul Newby will administer the Oath of office.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Lt. Governor Dan Forest releases the following statement regarding special session to repeal HB 2:
“Charlotte repealed an ordinance that the General Assembly already voided months ago. I support HB 2 and do not favor its repeal. No economic, political or ideological pressure can convince me that what is wrong is right. It will always be wrong for men to have access to women’s showers and bathrooms. If HB 2 is repealed, there will be nothing on the books to prevent another city or county to take us down this path again. The left has already publicly stated the removal of HB 2 is necessary for the rest of their agenda to move forward. With certainty, if HB 2 is repealed, we will fight this battle all over again with another city or county. The names will change, but the national groups who are pushing this agenda will not stop until their social engineering is accomplished. The only thing stopping them are those of us who continue to stand strong.”
