SPENDING OUT OF CONTROL IN PALMETTO STATE

FITSNews – July 15, 2007 – South Carolina’s Republican-led General Assembly has grown government nearly twice as fast as the national average over the past three years, with our 41% increase nearly doubling the 23.8% growth rate of the average state over that same time period.

According to a new report by the National Association of State Budget Officers (NASBO), the average state government grew spending by 6.5%, 8.7% and 8.6% in the last three years, respectively.

We’d just like to take this opportunity to remind you that South Carolina is “Republican Country.” And Republicans are supposed to be the party of “limited government.”
