N.C. State Sen. David Rouzer Wants to Eliminate Depts. of Energy, Education, HUD
State Sen. David Rouzer, the Republican nominee in North Carolina’s 7th congressional district slated to take on Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC), recounted during a primary debate in April how he would eliminate the Department of Commerce, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Department of Education.
“When I went over to the Department of Energy one day, you walk down the hall and most of them who are drawing 6-figure salaries are sitting there reading books and reading magazines,” Rouzer told the audience. “Ladies and gentlemen, we can devolve, get rid of the Department of Energy.”
