Politician admits corporate welfare is not for the people of NC

In an AP article posted on WRAL.com Sen. John Kerr (D) of Wayne County is quoted extensively as a spokesman in favor of the up-coming sales-tax-free weekend. Referring to North Carolina's corporate welfare giveaways, Kerr states that "We do so much for the big corporations that come in... [a]t least this
is something for our people in North Carolina." Finally, a politician who agrees that all the goodies handed out to attract businesses to the state are not "for our people in North Carolina." They say that the first step toward giving up an addiction is admitting that there is a problem. It looks like there's hope.
