Instead of providing solutions for the million North Carolinians out of work and a hurting state economy, Governor Cooper, in targeting local Ace Speedway, has shut down yet another business reminding our state that his authoritative grip knows no bounds. Cooper's 'do as I say, not as I do' hypocrisy needs to end, allowing our state's businesses to fully reopen and get back to work.
While many Democrats are focused on defunding our police officers, Republicans are focused on defunding global terrorism.

It is our hope that this meeting today will serve as a starting point for a peaceful path moving forward. All of us should honor George Floyd by listening, learning, and advocating for change. But under no circumstances should we allow his tragic death to be a pathway for more suffering, and allow the true purpose of this movement to be lost in vain. Greensboro is one of the birthplaces of the civil rights movement. Historical progress has been made, but there is more work to be done. We are committed to supporting both our law enforcement officers and peaceful demonstrations in working together to make Greensboro and North Carolina a better place for all of our communities.

With his delay in regards to the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, Governor Cooper is showcasing yet another example of allowing North Carolinians to suffer for his apparent political agenda, even at the cost of millions of dollars to the Tar Heel State. In 2016, he refused to defend our state while we were being economically boycotted to the tune of billions of dollars and now he is trying to hold us as political hostages again. Governor Cooper needs to know that the more than one million North Carolinians out of work are more important than his agenda.
This legislation goes as far in serving North Carolinians as Nancy Pelosi’s freezer full of expensive ice cream. Even moderate Democrats today rejected this power grab. Put bluntly, it’s a collection of extraneous radical liberal policies combined to capitalize on people’s suffering and a $3 trillion check to ensure a prolonged recession. Instead of this disgraceful approach, we must realize the pain of those who have lost their jobs, put politics aside, and act on a plan that brings confidence for the safe and prosperous path to reopening and revitalizing.

For decades, politicians in Washington have failed the families of North Carolina and the country in addressing China’s rise. We have allowed the economic, human rights and now global health abuses of the Chinese Communist Party – at the expense of our workers and families – go unchecked long enough. It’s time to cage the Paper Tiger and show the world that China is much more roar than bite.

While families across North Carolina and this nation struggle with the effects of school closures, the last thing on parents’ minds should be their childrens’ rising education costs. By expanding the use of 529 plans for learning from home expenses, the financial burden put onto our state’s parents will be lessened, allowing them to focus on the most important thing -- their children.
