Just what does the Chatham County Democratic Party support?

Pittsboro, NC - I want to thank Randy Voller for explaining to the voters of Chatham County just where the Chatham County Democratic Party stands. In a recent Chatlist post he stated, “In fact, the Chatham County Democratic Party categorically opposes the agenda that Art Pope and the Koch Brothers have paid for in North Carolina and America.”

He supplied links to several articles that explained just which organizations are supposedly funded and controlled by Art Pope and the Koch Brothers. So I went to the websites of a few of these organizations to find out just what the Chatham County Democratic Party categorically opposes.

Americans for Prosperity™ (AFP) and Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFP Foundation) are committed to educating citizens about economic policy and mobilizing those citizens as advocates in the public policy process.
To that end, AFP and AFP Foundation support:

· Cutting taxes and government spending in order to halt the encroachment of government in the economic lives of citizens by fighting proposed tax increases and pointing out evidence of waste, fraud, and abuse.
· Tax and Expenditure Limitations to promote fiscal responsibility.
· Removing unnecessary barriers to entrepreneurship and opportunity by sparking citizen involvement in the regulatory process early on in order to reduce red tape.
· Restoring fairness to our judicial system.
