More Democrat induced poverty

Thanks, Mr. Butterfield, for doing such a fine job in all your time representing Northeast North Carolina. If the population has declined and the poverty rate has risen, that tells us the 'affluent 1 percenters' are leaving. Those are the folks who create jobs through their capital investment, entrepreneurship, and understanding of capitalism. As jobs leave, incomes decline and tax revenues follow, unless they are raised to cover losses. Raising taxes drives others out, as prices rise ahead of incomes. So, stand up and take a bow, sir.
