Washington Post: North Carolina Tries Austerity

In North Carolina, unimpeded GOP drives state hard to the right.

I am glad some state is trying the Austerity path. The US is designed to support state level experiments with governance and this is one of them.  The Democrats have California.  So we will see which one does better.

The issue I have is that we cannot even agree on the goals.  Democrats will measure reduced unemployment, increased income after total taxes, reduced income inequality, increased life span and educational test scores. The GOP will measure total income growth, average income tax rate and total business investment.
