Democratic NC Governor: Let’s Just Cancel The Next Election
And here I thought Democrats loved democracy. Guess not:
As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending congressional elections for the next couple of years.
“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”
Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things,” Perdue said.
Of course, it’s just a coincidence that her party appears to be headed for an even bigger shellacking next year than they got in 2010, and that as a consequence, they’ll probably lose control of the Senate to go with their loss of the House in ’10. And everyone will love ObamaCare once it’s passed, too. And the stimulus will keep unemployment below 8%.
