What Matters-Rep. Bill Brawley-Monday, February 13, 2017-39 Minutes

Mark speaks with Rep. Bill Brawley, (R-Mecklenburg) about facts versus fiction on education funding that in fact has increased over the past several years even though the Left and the media say that it has not. He discusses how things were worse than expected in 2011 when the Republicans convened the legislative session as the majority for the first time in decades and how the previous Democrat majority left a nearly $3 billion budget deficit as well as several key state programs in disrepair, including Medicaid, unemployment and the State Health Plan. Also, Brawley explains how cutting taxes and regulations has brought the state to a place of having budget surpluses and a strong business climate.
