Gov. Nikki Haley has begun her second term and still has not come up with any bright ideas about improving South Carolina that have actually helped. I’ve heard about all of the businesses that are locating here, but some are also leaving for the simple fact that she does not like unions.
It just seems to me that she is against anything that has the potential to improve the livelihood of a South Carolinian. No wage increase (except for her staff), no unions (so a company can do whatever it wants to employees), no expansion of Medicaid (that would allow more health care for many who lack it). I like South Carolina and would like to see better cooperation within state government, rather than worrying about Washington, which does not run anything here.
I am a Democrat, and if Republicans think they’re smarter than anyone else, then show me. I’m tired of reading stories of domestic violence and dodging potholes. Raising the gas tax is still a tax increase, and lowering other taxes results in reduced revenue.
