Columbia, SC — Many letter writers have criticized Gov. Nikki Haley for not wanting to expand Medicaid, calling it a win-win situation. In reality it would be much like an adjustable-rate mortgage where you get a low “sucker” rate for a few years, and then it increases substantially. In the state’s case, the duration likely would be forever, and for all we know the federal enticement money could stop in just a few years.
As for her policy of not welcoming unionized companies, this is why we are seeing such economic growth under her leadership. Companies do not want to locate in union-friendly states. Our unemployment rate is now below the national average. Thank you, Gov. Haley.
