The N.C. Association of Educators posted a video of House Majority Leaders Paul Stam warning supporters not to refer to private school tax credits as vouchers.
Stam, an Apex Repubican, has a bill that would give parents who enroll a child in private school a $2,500 tax credit.
If supporters called them vouchers, he said, their mothers should wash their mouths out with soap.
"The term voucher polls way below tax credit," he said. "So get it out of your vocabulary."
