TOTAL COST OF THE 2019 NCAE AGENDA

$9,835,000,000

ELIMINATE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIPS

9,603 KIDS DEPRIVED

NCAE is targeting low-income and minority parents and children by fighting to abolish Opportunity Scholarships in the state of North Carolina.

North Carolina families overwhelming believe school choice is a good thing for our children and this is a step backward.

Simply put, this is putting political power before the best interests of parents and children.

EXPAND MEDICAID

$650,000,000

Another example of NCAE being a mouthpiece for the NC Democratic Party and Governor Roy Cooper.

The costs of expanding Medicaid could take away funding from public education.

NEW TAXPAYER DEBT

$6,400,000,000

The NCAE wants to obligate North Carolina taxpayers to billions of dollars in debt payments by supporting Roy Cooper’s bond request.

NO TAX CUTS

Last year, the NCAE supported Roy Cooper’s budget that repealed tax cuts for all North Carolina families, especially lower income families.

NCAE’s agenda will force a massive tax increase on hard-working families if all of their agenda is to be funded.

NCAE, a liberal special interest group, is advocating for its own agenda at the expense of the opportunity and prosperity of all North Carolinians.

NCAE GOALS

We broke the supermajority in the General Assembly, restored the governor’s veto power, and created a new majority on the NC Supreme Court.
RED FOR ED, PRESS RELEASE
I’m sad to say, we still have enemies on Jones Street…So, it’s time we paid them another visit. Just in case they need a reminder that we’re still here, and they still have a job to do.
MARK JEWELL, PRESIDENT, NCAE, MARCH 22, 2019
