S.C. Sen. Tom Davis (R-Beaufort) – one of the handful of authentic free market fiscal conservatives in the S.C. General Assembly – will file a universal parental choice bill this week, sources familiar with the draft legislation tell FITS.

Not only that, we’re told Davis will accompany his proposal with an unusually blunt critique of the education “reform” plans offered by Gov. Nikki Haley (RINO-Lexington) and S.C. Sen. Vincent Sheheen (D-Camden).

Davis declined to discuss his legislation – saying he would make the bill (and his remarks in support of it) available to all members of the media at the same time later this week.

Davis was a staunch supporter of the universal parental choice bill championed in 2011 by S.C. Sen. Larry Grooms (R-Berkeley), so we look forward to seeing what he rolls out.

We also hope he is as forceful as possible in calling out Haley’s plan for the big government, status quo nonsense that it is.

South Carolina spends nearly $10 billion a year – more than $12,000 per student (not counting bond money) – perpetuating the very worst government-run K-12 education system in America.

It’s long past time to turn off that spigot … and put parents, churches, community groups and private providers back in charge of education in this state.

I wondered when carpetbagger Davis would slither out from under his rock. Now I wonder where Mace is? She seems to have vanished.

Aren’t we tired of this story already?? You can send your damn brats to any private school as long as I don’t have to pay for it.

You don’t get the choice on whose school you get to pay for, unfortunately for all of us. So it’s whatever the cockroaches in the Statehouse decide.

The solution for stopping the never ending butt kissing (salary hikes every election) for teachers and public safety workers to get their votes is start the Felons United for Common Knowledge and Yet Otherwise United Super Pac to register to vote and drive convicted felons to the polls. They out number teachers and public safety workers 10 to 1 in any given county.

So as I understand it you want to force me to help pay for education in private Catholic Schools, or even Muslim or Hindu Schools. What if I have a religious objection?
