Senators To Haley: “Go Big” With Veto Pen

Several fiscally conservative S.C. Senators tell FITS they have met privately with S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley and urged her to “go big” with her veto pen. “We told her she needs to go big this year,” one of these Senators told FITS. “And we told her we can sustain her…

Several fiscally conservative S.C. Senators tell FITS they have met privately with S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley and urged her to “go big” with her veto pen.

“We told her she needs to go big this year,” one of these Senators told FITS. “And we told her we can sustain her vetoes this year.”

Haley is in the process of reviewing the state budget for the upcoming fiscal year – which begins on July 1. We’ve been told she plans to wield a bigger veto axe this year – of course it would be hard for her not to do so.

Last year Haley issued only seventy-four budget vetoes totaling less than $60 million – or one quarter of one percent of the state’s $23 billion budget.  The previous year she cut just $213 million – or less than one percent of that year’s $22.1 billion spending plan. Fiscal conservatives tell FITS they want to see Haley slash between $400-500 million – starting with a $24 million appropriation for expanded government-run preschool.

Will she hit that mark? We’ll know by next Tuesday, the deadline for her to submit her proposed cuts …

In fact Haley has until midnight on Tuesday to deliver her vetoes to the S.C. General Assembly – which will start voting “aye” or “nay” on her proposed cuts the following day.

Unlike previous years, Haley’s vetoes have a real chance to be sustained this year given the growing number of fiscally conservative lawmakers in both chambers. Of course it only takes one-third of one chamber to uphold a budget veto.

Again, that’s like asking Haley to shave an inch off a penis.

Two five year old boys are standing at the potty to pee.

When one says, ” Your thing doesn’t have any skin on it!”

” I’ve been circumcised.” Says the second boy.

” What does that mean?”

“It means they cut the skin off the end.”

” How old were you when it was cut off?”

” My mom said that I was two days old.”

” Did it hurt?”

” You bet it hurt, I couldn’t walk for a year!”

If someone wants her to “go big” with a veto pen, then that someone should be out shopping for the biggest dildo pen they can find.

Oh, I know! Take some piglets into the State House too!

Yea, God forbid their parents get them tested.

You just proved why DHEC shouldn’t exist to start. Their incompetence will never be “fixed”. Better for people to take personal responsibility.

Hey, who came up with the photo for this piece? Must have been an ex-government employee. Looks like some people have trouble telling a probe from a ball point pen.
However, maybe a “cattle prode” would be better to use on the legislature than a pen.
In this case if “the pen is mightier than the sword” it looks like we are comparing a rusty safety “pin” to a sword.
I see by the comments you draw a lot of the people who befieve that government should take care of people from the tip of the penis to the last shovel of dirt on the grave.
