"These salaries are higher than the maximum salaries the state lists for such positions."

I thought Republicans were all for fiscal responsibility? Apparently, that applies to everyone else BUT them.

These kids are barely out of college and been "given" positions that others have had to work for and many years to achieve. Just goes to show, it's all about who ya know and maybe even who ya ____.

I bet repubs aren't taking this well. This is a great material to use in a commercial for Americans against Pat McCrory for Governor.

There's been a run on jars of Vaseline in NC, they need it for the job that Republicans are giving them.

They should just plan on NOT being "victors" for very long!

McCrory just signed his walking papers.

I think if Mister Pope still wants him to be Governor, he will remain Governor. Think about it for a while? I have to give Art Pope credit, he keeps his "window dressing" Governor in the limelight and keeps the publicity away from himself.

Oh our useless puppet governor will loosen the purse strings for his cronies while cutting the budget for education. I cannot wait until he gets voted out of office. This man is ruining our state.

You and me both. He's on my "I'd dance on your grave list." The only other person on that is a coworker I call the Preventor of IT service.

I'd substitute "pee" for " dance" and my list is headed by Dick Cheney.

[NC Policy Watch recently first broke the news that Matthew McKillip and Ricky Diaz, both 24 years old, received pay raises of $22,500 and $23,000, respectively, to work in senior-level positions at the state Department of Health and Human Services. They are each graduated from college two years ago and worked on McCrory's 2012 campaign and transition team.]

Graduated from college two years ago and have already learned from Republican 101 that corruption does have it advantages, lesson taught by none other the Governor himself. Is it no wonder the Republican vision for America is so dear to their hearts.

Another corrupt Republican gov. Just like the crook in Virginia. Both elected by "Christian" voters. Jesus must be soooo proud.
08:16 PM on 08/29/2013
Proud??? The sarcasm is so warranted, but I'm afraid He's crying his eyes out!

Another example of GOP corruption. They had no experience yet they are being paid well above the cap of the pay range. Pathetic.....

Get used to it, this is how Repubs do business. If you don,t like it vote for a democrat and good luck.
08:18 PM on 08/29/2013
We will...and without anyone's permission!

Another example of an oxymoron - Fiscally responsible Republican.

We did. I didn't vote for him but enough d0mb people here did. He is an embarrassment and god only knows how this state will look like in a few years.

The few thousands who provided the winning margin of votes for NC republicans, first in 2010 and again in 2012, are the exact same ones who've been told to live in fear of Obama, and the same voters who are now suffering at the hands of those for whom they voted! North Carolina is the living example of what happens when lies created by any politician, or group of politicians, drive fear into the gullible and ignorant.
