Re: “Our endorsements for the 2014 general election

Voting for Hagan? Consider this.

Kay Hagan seems to want to make the US Senate race all about NC State Politics. I'm OK with that, and I'd ask anyone who supports her to consider the following. Prior to 2010, the Democrats had almost complete control of NC State Government for 100 years. But I'd like to focus on recent times. I moved to NC in 1995. From 1995 - 2010, the Democrats had 100% control of NC State Government, with majority's in the Legislature and Senate, and the Governorship. Kay Hagan was a NC State Senator from 1999 - 2009. During that time there was nothing Republicans could have done to stop them. Consider this:

1. Why didn't they raise the minimum wage in NC? Many other states have done that.

2. Teacher pay was consistently at the bottom of nationwide rankings, at around 48th. Why didn't they raise teacher's pay?

3. If Universal Health Care Coverage is so important to them, why didn't they pass
a state law and implement universal coverage for the citizens of NC? They did it in
Massachusetts.

4. Why did they allow Duke Energy to build all those coal ash plants along all the NC waterways? All of them have been there for decades.

I can understand why Hagan wants to shy away from talking about national issues during her campaign because there is not much to say, but I believe I illustrated her and the Democrats record in state government is even worse. I also illustrated that she's had 16 years in public office and has done nothing for the constituents she claims to represent.
