JLF head John Hood is writing a biography of Jim Martin. Today, Hood had an opinion piece in the Charlotte Observer comparing Pat McCrory to Jim Martin. The key quote:
This year, [Pat] McCrory and the legislature fashioned a tax-reform package that will pull North Carolina’s corporate rate down to 5 percent by 2015, and as low as 3 percent in subsequent years if revenue targets are met. Was their economic-growth strategy a betrayal of Jim Martin’s philosophy of government? No. It was its modern application.
