Governance At Its Worst

| Posted in Blog

You just cannot defend what happened last night in Congress. Yesterday we were literally emailed a 5,600-page PDF that contained one of the largest spending bills in our history – over $2.3 trillion. And NOT ONE Member of Congress had time read it before a vote was called just a few short hours later. This entire thing was negotiated behind closed doors. No hearings. No real debate. No input from... Read more »

Some good news going into Thanksgiving week for South Carolina. It was recently reported that last month, our state’s unemployment rate dropped down to 4.2%.

Additional COVID Relief

| Posted in Blog

Liberals argue that Republican should capitulate here. They say we should agree to TRILLIONS in additional debt to cover things like bailouts for mismanaged local governments, and supplements that make it more lucrative to stay on unemployment rather than accept a suitable job. They call us “evil” when we dare question the sanity of their broad spending, yet they won’t even allow the House to con... Read more »

Lots of competing ideas right now about unemployment benefits.
