Under the Dome

On fiscal cliff, Pat McCrory shrugged

Republican governors gathered in Las Vegas are facing questions about how to solve the fiscal cliff -- particularly whether the Congress should let the tax breaks for the wealthy expire, as President Barack Obama has proposed.

N.C. Gov.-elect Pat McCrory got the question, too. His answer: a shrug. 

From Politico's Jonathan Martin and James Hohmann: "Asked if new federal tax revenue should be taken off the table, Maine Gov. Paul LePage said: “I’m not saying that. I’m not in Washington. Let the people in Washington make that decision.”

North Carolina Gov.-elect Pat McCrory also shrugged. “I don’t know,” he said, when asked if tax increases on the rich can be avoided in a fiscal cliff deal."
