Red State GOP Supermajority Approves Dozens of Bills – And Democrat Governor Can’t Veto Any Of Them

What’s Happening:

If you believe the media, America is getting more liberal, not less.

But that doesn’t seem to be the case in many states across the country. Voters are moving quickly to the right and some states are getting redder by the minute as lawmakers flip parties.

In one state, which is often considered a swing state, a Democrat recently defected to the GOP — that gave both the state House and Senate a Republican supermajority.

The leftist governor, who might be out of a job soon, cannot veto any of their bills. So, Republicans are wasting no time racking up the victories.

From Fox News:

North Carolina lawmakers this week approved dozens of bills in a marathon legislative session as state Republicans continued riding a wave of momentum in the aftermath of a high-profile defection of a Democratic legislator…

However, Republicans now have a veto-proof supermajority in both chambers of the state legislature thanks to state Rep. Tricia Cotham, who announced last month that she was joining the Republican Party after serving her deep blue Charlotte-area district as a Democrat.

Yes, North Carolina Republicans are pushing a huge tidal wave of legislation, after earning a supermajority in both chambers.

Among the many conservative bills they passed were a bill banning abortion after 12 weeks, increased payments to foster families, and more funding for childcare centers.

The leftist governor, Roy Cooper, vowed to veto the abortion ban. But guess what? Republicans have enough seats in both chambers to overturn his bogus veto. That’s what’s called listening to the will of the people.

Tricia Cotham ditched the Democratic Party, and that one move sealed the Republican’s majority. They are not sitting on their hands, either; they’re taking a page out of Florida’s book and actually doing something for their residents.

In previous years, many red states wasted their majorities doing nothing. But in the age of Biden, everything counts.

Republican-led states can’t sit on their laurels as Biden tries to turn America into the Soviet Union. Every pro-life bill, every tax cut, every move to put American values first, will hold back Joe’s dangerous agenda.

I hope the rest of red America is listening. Pay attention to what North Carolina did here!

Key Takeaways:

  • Republicans in North Carolina have passed numerous bills, including an abortion ban.
  • The GOP enjoys a supermajority, meaning the Democrat governor’s veto is meaningless.
  • Cotham ditched the Democratic Party, giving Republicans this massive advantage.
