The Truth About Education, Unemployment, and Medicaid

EDUCATION

  • Public education budgets have increased $1 billion from 2010-11 to 2014-15, not cut $500 million, as is being falsely stated.  $7.53 billion in 2010-11: $8.6 billion in 2014-15
  • Gov. Perdue and her party froze teacher pay in 2009; We unfroze it in 2014. Every teacher is getting a raise; Largest raises to teachers hit hardest in the freeze.
  • $321 million=largest amount for education raises in N.C. history, 7% average = one of the largest percents for teacher raises.
  • Lt. Gov. Forest set a goal to be at or above the national average for teacher pay in three years; this is year one.
  • In 2011, we inherited a $3 billion budget shortfall from Gov. Perdue and her party. We balanced the budget while cutting taxes for every N.C. family.
  • The average family of four has saved over $1200 since 2011 just on sales tax; this is everyone who buys things. EVERYONE

UNEMPLOYMENT

  • Gov. Perdue inherited a $1 billion surplus unemployment insurance.  Four years later, 2013 she left Gov. McCrory a $2.7 billion debt in unemployment insurance.
  • Our tax reform, regulatory reform and other reforms have made it easier for small businesses to hire more people; the unemployment rate has dropped from almost 10% to near 6.5% since early 2013.  This is in spite of federal policies that make it harder for small businesses.

ELECTION REFORM

  • Our election reforms simply brings us in line with most other states; only one other state had same day registration.
  • Over 35 states have a for of voter I.D. Georgia’s experience has shown that photo I.D. does not reduce voter turnout for minorities the elderly, etc.

MEDICAID

  • State Medicaid costs have more than doubled since 2011.  The proposal to also expand eligibility could cost the state $5 billion, possible doubling your state sales tax.
