Another Berger cave in to Cooper - Obamacare Medicaid expansion | Beaufort County Now | follows far left cave to Cooper on Green New Deal

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

The word is out that RINO liberal NC Senate President Phil Berger will cave in to far left Governor Roy Cooper on Obamacare Medicaid expansion, at huge cost to North Carolina taxpayers.  This follows his recent cave in on the radical Green New Deal to Cooper, which will cost electric ratepayers a bundle, as well as taxpayers.

This comes at a time when changes in federal provisions will make this even more costly to North Carolina taxpayers.

Will other Republican legislators follow him over the cliff again like then did on the far left Green New Deal?  The Republican grassroots seems to be mounting a last ditch effort to stop that.  I was forwarded a copy of an email, for example, sent out by the Beaufort County Republican Party urging people to call local GOP state senators in eastern NC to oppose the Obamacare Medicaid expansion.

One wonders what makes Comrade Berger tick these days?  Is he seeking the Lenin Peace Prize or a date with Alexandria Ocassio-Cortez or Greta Thunberg, or has someone like Soros or the ChiComs dropped some money in an offshore account for him?  Berger has gone hard left on us. He is Pelosi without the skirt.  And will his little puppy dog Timmy Moore blindly follow him like on the Green New Deal?  Do we really even need a GOP legislative majority if all they are going to do is be Cooper puppets?

Go Back

It looks like the Medicaid expansion train may have run out of steam. The 3rd district GOP also sent out an email asking activists to call GOP legislators from eastern North Carolina to oppose this, after Rep. Kidwell spoke with the district chairman. Now, multiple eastern NC Republican state senators are telling callers they oppose expanding Medicaid and that this proposal will go nowhere. Hopefully a stake has been driven through the heart of this monster. The monster that the legislative leadership did unleash as Cooper collaborators, the Green New Deal, will hit us hard enough.

A conversation today with someone who has been familiar with Berger for some time and what influences him and it was enlightening given Berger's recent tilt to the left. From what I am told, Berger has never really had much of a personal ideological compass and tends to be influenced by his close associates when it comes to policy. Early on, his conservative moves were primarily influenced by a state senator who was part of Berger's inner circle, but Berger started to drift when that senator retired. Over the last few years, a liberal influence on Berger has been one of his senior staff members named Brent Woodcox. Woodcox, who moved to NC to go to college from out of state is a millenial who prior to the 2020 election trashed President Trump on social media but kept his job with Berger anyway. The degree to which Berger depends on Woodcox is shown by the last redistricting when after the GOP redistricting consultant got sick, Berger turned the actual drawing of the districts over to Woodcox. The Woodcox maps gerrymandered the most vocal senator on sensible energy policy, Senator Bill Cook out of the senate, and drew Cook's old district for a House member who has been a longtime solar and wind energy flunky. That was all mighty convenient for the push for the Green New Deal, which Woodcox is said to support. I understand Woodcox thinks it will "help" Republicans to move left and that he is also an advocate of caving in on the Obamacare Medicaid expansion.

The more that comes out about Berger, the more it is apparent that he needs to be replaced as desperately as McConnell does at the national level by someone who stands firm on Republican principles.
