Sen. Berger Statement on Gov. Cooper’s Reckless Budget Proposal

Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) spoke yesterday about Roy Cooper’s budget proposal, calling it an irresponsible, proposal from a lame-duck governor who wants future North Carolinians to pick up his tab. Governor Cooper, he said, “wants to go on a reckless spending spree by raising taxes, raiding the state’s savings account, and proposing the largest increase in year-over-year spending in the state’s history. He is following the same failed Democratic playbook that is causing residents to flee blue states like New York, California, and Illinois.”
