McCrory off on another RGA excursion

Adding to his collection of fancy little hotel soap bars:

Three Republican governors will break out their crystal balls Tuesday at The Aspen Institute as part of the McCloskey Speaker Series.

The governors will be discussing “their forward-looking solutions to the issues of health care, the economy, immigration and other areas that are pressing in their states,” says an event description.

If McCrory were forced to take sodium pentothal before going up on stage, he would probably say, "Well, in North Carolina we're hovering on a government shutdown, because instead of hashing out the annual Budget, Republicans in the Legislature have spent their time worrying about possums, protecting Confederate statues and disenfranchising thousands of voters that live in cities which prefer Democrats. Also, I'm pretty sure I shit my pants a little bit approximately twenty minutes ago, but I don't know if it's a stomach bug or that all-you-can-eat breakfast bar the hotel very graciously provides to hungry travelers like myself."

I haven't heard any

I haven't heard any definitive plans. Only mumbles about 'studying,' and 'looking into,' but never a plan.

Pat's forward-looking solutions

health care: for people who can afford it.
the economy: keep cutting taxes for the rich and raising taxes on the poor. Keep cutting funding for education. Keep sending good jobs out of state while bringing in poverty-level-wage jobs.
immigration: Nope, none of that, thanks.
other areas that are pressing in his state: outlaw abortions; allow everyone to have guns everywhere; stop poor people, minorities & young people from voting; and ensure magistrates have the religious freedom to refuse to follow established law. Oh, and also possums.

The braintrust

Nikki Haley, Doug Ducey and Pat McCrory.

This is not a gathering of Mensa candidates or ethics paragons.
