Fitzsimon: Governor's 'change'

2 Comments | Leave a Comment


The day before reporter Sarah Ovaska at N.C. Policy Watch broke the news that two 24-year-old former campaign staffers for Gov. Pat McCrory working at the Department of Health and Human Services received huge pay raises last spring, the Wilmington Star-News reported on the controversial efforts by the McCrory administration to turn the state’s Medicaid program over to for-profit managed care companies.

The story quoted a local doctor saying he was worried that patients would suffer under the new model that he had seen fail in other states. There were comments from folks at Community Care of North Carolina, the state’s successful homegrown nonprofit managed care network that has won awards for both saving money and providing patient-centered care.

The same day in April that McCrory announced his intentions to privatize Medicaid, Republican Sen. Richard Burr presented an award to CCNC for the high quality of care it provides to patients in rural areas.

and obama ran on change too

And most people were boondoggled into voting for his brand of change and scandal. Try reporting on Obama's faults with equal zest and vigor, (a JFK phrase I thought you democrats would enjoy) and then maybe, just maybe, you'll have some credibility.

Don't hold your breath for them to spout anything but demorat talking points. Conservatives thoughts are not allowed at the reflector. They think they are just too smart to allow one in. There lies the problem.
