On Wednesday morning, the North Carolina House of Representatives voted to override Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget. Well, it wasn’t really the entire House, since only 64 of the 120 members were present for the vote. While almost all of the Democratic members were at 9/11 memorial ceremonies, Republican leadership made a motion to reconsider the state budget. The members present, predominantly Republican, voted 55-9 to override Gov. Cooper’s veto of the state budget. Telling Dem reps there won’t be a vote on the morning of 9/11 and then holding a stealth vote while those members are out honoring the victims and first responders of 9/11? Sigh! Needless to say, the Democratic reps are not happy: Gov. Cooper called this an “assault on our democracy” and Representative Deb Butler continues to declare Democrats “will not yield.” We don’t know about y’all, but this seems seriously low to us.
