NC House Republicans override Gov. Cooper’s budget veto while he’s at 9/11 memorial event

quote [ North Carolina House Republicans called a surprise vote and overrode Gov. Roy Cooper’s budget veto on Wednesday morning, Cooper said at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

According to a tweet by State Sen. Jeff Jackson (D-Mecklenburg), almost half of the House members were absent when the vote was taken, which resulted in a 55-9 tally.

Jackson said Democrats were specifically told by Republicans that no votes would be held in Wednesday’s morning session. ]

Commemorating 9/11 by owning the libs through dishonest and anti-democratic conduct.

I've never understood why Congresscritters are even allowed to not vote when that's literally their job. It's like being a barista who's somehow never around when it's time to pour the coffee.

mugrimm on Twitter: "Post 9/11 thread for people to post the wildest shit they remember from 01 to 06 I'll start: People thought Osama had an entire mountain hollowed out that he was using as his base and that's why AQ was hard to find and that somehow a group of like 30 dudes arranged this.

Some quality shit here. #madpridewasright

Madpride wasn’t wrong. Just 12 years ahead of its time.
