It’s nice that the governor and Raleigh’s mayor are getting all bipartisan over the Dix deal and all, but it still ain’t right.
That’s the message from Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger on Thursday, following Gov. Pat McCrory’s and Mayor Nancy McFarlane’s news conference earlier in the day.
“We appreciate that the governor and Raleigh mayor are attempting to make things right for the taxpayers of North Carolina and the state’s mentally ill,” Berger said in a statement his office released. “But it is difficult to understand why they are extending an unlawful leave.
“This proposed agreement delays doing the right thing until 2014 – why not do the right thing today?”
