50 percent would be allocated to pay prizes
7 percent for compensation of lottery retailers
8 percent for operating expenses -- including 1 million a year for gambling addition programs and no more than 1-percent for advertising
35 percent for Education Lottery Fund

So you'd like to switch from none of the money goes to education to only half the money goes to education comrade biker?

“The lottery was sold to the public as extra money for education, but Republican legislators have cut the base funding and supplanted the revenue from the lottery, so the net hasn’t been positive for education,” he said. “And that base funding has been given away in tax cuts to the wealthiest individuals and corporations in North Carolina.”

Queen said Republican legislators have been deceptive in saying that education spending has increased over the last few years while the party has been in the majority in Raleigh.

“They’ve been cutting education for the last two years and backfilled it with lottery money,” he said. “And they haven’t even restored the funding cuts that were necessary during the recession.”

During the recession, North Carolina benefitted from more than $15 million in federal stimulus money. Nearly $3 million of that went to the Department of Public Instruction, but after that money dried up and the state budget began to recover, the education budget never did.

“They like to say state funding has continued to grow for education, but that’s only true if you ignore the revenue sharing during the recession,” Queen said.

Sen. Jim Davis, R-Franklin, was out of the country and couldn’t be reached for comment on the issue, but he has defended the Republican-led legislature’s education spending numerous times in the last several years. While education funding reached a low of $7 billion in 2010 under Democrat leadership, Davis boasts that the Republican leadership has increased the education budget every year since 2011. Last year’s education budget reached up to $8.1 billion.

“The state spending has increased significantly since the Republicans assumed leadership of the General Assembly,” Davis states on his website for re-election. “Federal stimulus money that the Democrats used to pad the education budget ran out, but Republicans added over $1 billion in state spending afterwards.”

Senate Majority Leader Tony Rand, D-Cumberland, brought up the bill for consideration about 1:15 p.m. Senate leader Marc Basnight told WRAL he called senators back to Raleigh because he thought the votes were there to pass a lottery.

Exactly, when he knew that two GOPers would not be there

Second part to this is why Lt Gov Purdue, who cast the tie breaking vote, suspended the two separate days, two separate vote rule. Of course, you and I know the answer

You know what you would tell me? Tough titty show up to work. There was no "We promise not to hold a vote while you're gone" I don't believe folks were called back for today's vote and the number of absent legislators were wildly different, unless you're referring to a different lottery vote. Honestly, do you really think the Democrats believed that this vote was on the agenda today and that they just all decided to skip, as much time as they have spent debating and working on this budget?

A district that has been red since The Kennedy Administration and yet The GOP still committed election fraud and they narrowly won this special election because the people of North Carolina love criminals and criminality.
Well that and the national goppers sent in millions from out of state to hold it.
For all the Trump dicksucker that commented on my thread no one has any sort of explanation of The NCGOP's actions.
I did, you just didnt like the fucking answer
Ah, so you admit you're a Trump dicksucker
No, I admitted the NC GOP used the same bullshit tactics as the NC Democrats used in the past
Not the same at all The Dems got education funding for the state, THE NCGOP is trying to prevent the people of North Caroling from getting healthcare. The NCGOP is the enemy of the people and you are their lackey.
Thats a good spin but too bad the funding doesnt go directly into education. It feeds into the general fund
AND IT NEVER RETURNS.......................
I'm willing to bet the lottery funds weren't added to the amount budgeted the year before. Not saying there wasn't an increase in total funds. I'm saying lottery funds were used to replace education fund from prior years. I'm also willing to bet the voters weren't made aware of this before the vote.
Socialists are communists who haven't fully committed.

What's funny about the lottery is you're using the poorest segment of society to pay for an education they are not getting. :lol: :lol:

You have a rockin' retort yourself, you say they substitute the lottery funds for the tax funds and it's the republicans doing it. Feel free to ignore that part.
