Becki Gray visited the East Wake Republican Club this evening to talk about the non-partisan work that the John Locke Foundation does for the North Carolina public. One subject was the out-of-control spending of our state government over the last few decades. Many on the left would rationalize that because our population has grown, naturally our government has grown as well.
One of the striking things that John Locke and Civitas have done is researched how our budget has grown in relationship to our population. Take a look at this chart to see how the left is spinning this issue and they're completely wrong!
