Health care “repeal” passes state Senate; new senator impresses

- in Legislative Watch

The Republicans’ health care “repeal” bill passed the NC Senate on a party-line vote today. No big surprise there.

If you get a chance, however, check out the video of the debate. If you do so, you’ll find the speech of a new Democratic senator from Cumberland County named Dr. Eric Mansfield (pictured above).  In a General Assembly not known for particualry well-spoken figures in recent years, Mansfield’s speech stands out as truly exceptional.

We’ll try to get the link to the video up ASAP.
