Nothing short of infuriating. Insulin costs about ten bucks (per vial) to make, but they've been selling it for $300+. That's after all the outrage a few years ago when they jacked up the price to near $700. Capping that price would save untold lives every year, but Republicans just don't care.

Are you afraid you and your cronies might have to pay some more taxes? #ncpol

Timmy's not the brightest bulb in the...closet? I mean, that's where I keep my spare bulbs, but that just doesn't look right. Lemme ask Google...In the box? That makes even less sense...

I can't fathom it either, but some of them still believe in that jackass.
Don't like what #k12 #publiceducation looks like in NC? Form a board and start talking to @Hillsdale and the Barney Charter initiative: Conservative, Classical education can happen in #NorthCarolina. #nced #ncpol https://t.co/tDTSU6dspk

Hillsdale? Have you been paying attention at all?
“I fully support our public schools in this state and our teachers as well,” Lee told reporters, citing increased funding for teacher pay and public education every year since he took office in 2019.
The governor’s response came nearly a week after Nashville station WTVF released portions of a nearly two-hour video taken with a hidden camera at a private event hosted by Hillsdale in Franklin, south of Nashville.
During the June event, which Lee attended, Arnn compared modern education to “the plague,” and dismissed degrees earned by higher education diversity officers as “easy.”
Speaking of Hillsdale’s charter school work, Arnn said: “We are going to try to demonstrate that you don’t have to be an expert to educate a child because basically anybody can do it.”
I don't even need to add anything to that. Anybody that still thinks this is a good idea is a f**king idiot.

It was live at noon, but even if it was live RFN, I wouldn't click the thingie. I'd rather listen to fingernails on a chalkboard...
On that cringe-worthy note, here's your Onion:
