With the PayPal pullout, HB2 has now officially killed more jobs than Obamacare.

Maybe that’s the plan.

See, Republicans are strong in rural areas, which are losing jobs and population. They’ve tried to reverse that since 2010, with no success.

So now they figure it’s easier to stop the explosive growth in strong Democratic urban areas like Raleigh and Charlotte. Voila: HB2! Businesses start to avoid North Carolina like the plague. Then Democratic areas will start declining, too.

It’s a twist on the old line about a village in Vietnam: “We have to destroy North Carolina in order to save it – for the Republican Party.”
