Nine “Republican in Name Only” members of the South Carolina Senate were slammed by one of the Palmetto State’s leading limited government groups this week after voting to reject proven free market academic reforms in favor of U.S. President Barack Obama’s signature education initiative.

There is good news, bad news and worse news.
The good news is last night the Senate, in a historic vote, finally took up school choice. Although the amendment was defeated we finally know who supports the failed status quo system, and who wants to move South Carolina forward.
