HOW MUCH ARE THEY GOING TO COST US?

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley took credit in her 2013 “State of the State” address for creating 31,574 new jobs – and luring more than $6 billion in private investment to the Palmetto State.

“It’s a great day in South Carolina,” right?

But what percentage of these jobs were taxpayer-funded positions? Paid for out of the rampant growth in government Haley has presided over since taking office in January 2011? And just as importantly – how much money in taxpayer-funded incentives did South Carolinians have to shell out in order to land these jobs?

Haley didn’t say …

Without the addition of taxpayer-funded positions, though, South Carolina would not have seen three straight months of declines in its unemployment rate. In fact from September to November of last year (the most recent quarter for which data is available), the Palmetto State added 24,700 new taxpayer-funded positions – helping drive its unemployment rate down from 9.1 to 8.3 percent.

Absent the influx of those positions, our state would have actually lost jobs over that three-month period.

Also, Haley failed to mention in her speech that South Carolina’s labor participation rate reached an all-time low of 58.4 percent in 2012 – which hardly seems like a number worth celebrating.

The Palmetto State needs to be growing jobs – not purchasing them with tax dollars.

Bottom line: Incentives are part of ALL competition…play or lose…We’ve played and won a lot under Haley and ED

The people getting the jobs don’t give a $#!* about incentives, just like the Millions in TAXES these industries pay help all of us…

Haley’s doing OK in a HORRIBLE Obama Economy…

We’re all just trying to keep above water until a Credible Defense can take out Obama’s power to F&*K it all up…

Haley is doing more than you or Sanford ever did…

I may not even vote for her in a Primary…but she is opposing Obama’s Hateful, Vengeful and Deleterious actions…That’s the BEST anyone can do to survive, right now…

So STFU and let her work…

Thanks for some of your support Mr. BigT. I don’t mind if you may choose not vote for her in the primary. Frankly, you are notoriously awful at picking winners.

T, you didn’t vote for Rommney or Romney in the primary. You hated him…and his religion. He was a loser in November, too, regardless of your vote.

And only a dumb ass admits to voting for Haley. And you’ll do it again, b/c you will be told to…like the rest of the sheep to slaughter.

Think for yourself. Don’t let the media do the thinking for you.

One thing about it: I get idiots like S.R. so verklempt they crap themselves, and start lying…

When you invent (make $#!* up) S.R…. you not only discredit yourself…you look intellectually deficient…

So if anyone THOUGHT you were a Dumb@$$ before…they now know…

Every state offers tax incentives and guess what? They eventually expire. BMW had a huge tax incentive and I don’t see anyone griping about them. Is Fits mad because the governor won’t return his booty calls?

I know a snow job when I see one.

In Sanford’s last year of office, there were something like 20,600 jobs announced (and this was when he was basically AWOL as a governor after hiking the Argentinian tail).

Queen Nikki takes credit for 32,000 in two years …or 16,000 a year, which is only about 80% of the pathetic numbers put up by Sanford.

But, because she’s a shameless self-promoting grifter trumpeting every single job as a credit to her own sweat, the perception
is that we are doing so much better.

And how many of those jobs actually came true – most of the jobs were “anticipated” jobs that would not happen for five years down the road. And then oops – these jobs NEVER happen. Nikki Haley is NOT the jobs governor. Besides Bobby Hitt and the local economic delegations do 99% of the work when comes to bringing jobs to SC.

A prestigious publication announced today the SC was the number one state for foreign investment. I can’t understand the number of mind less twits that don’t want to see out citizens find employment. Maybe unemployment comp.,EBT,section 8 and other programs are better for ones self esteem than being employed.

If Haley hired a Mexican named Jose… when he’d ask off for Sinco De Mayo, she’d be all “No Way, Jose” and give away his bank account info to Russians.

If Jose’s father was a fireman and had twin boys, he’d name them Jose and Jos-b.
