  •  Working class Dems who spent money (0+ / 0-)

    at the Convention deserve some consideration and respect.

    The argument is not about individual citizens of North Carolina, but about their government.   When hard working Dems have to spend hard earned money in NC, a significant portion of the money they spend goes towards sales/hotel/etc. taxes.  These taxes go into the coffers of the state, where they are squandered by right wing GOP legislators who pass offensive, radical legislation.  

    Any Dem who put their hard earned money into North Carolina's tax accounts during a Dem Convention are entitled to some reassurance that their money won't be similarly squandered during future conventions.

    I'm sure if you've spent several days to a week at an out of town hotel, you realize a large chunk of your bill goes to local and state taxes.
