CHIP LIMEHOUSE: LOCAL ECONOMY CANNOT ABSORB SCHOOL CLOSING
|| By FITSNEWS || Liberal South Carolina “Republican” lawmaker Chip Limehouse wants embattled S.C. State University (SCSU) to remain open … but his reasoning for supporting the historically black school is a troubling indictment of the extent to which the Palmetto State’s rural communities have become dependent on government.
According to Limehouse, Palmetto State taxpayers should continue bailing out the chronically mismanaged campus because “closing S.C. State would put the city of Orangeburg in dire financial straits.”
Really? That’s his reason?
Unbelievable … so by that logic, any government expenditure which supports rural economies should remain in place?
The rotund “Republican” made this ridiculous comment during an interview with the Charleston Regional Business Journal – one of South Carolina’s many left-leaning, crony capitalist publications. He’s also introduced an amendment which would put S.C. Rep. Jimmy Merrill‘s plan to shut SCSU down for a year on ice … giving S.C. governor Nikki Haley the authority to appoint a “receiver” for the school.
Ah yes, typical Palmetto State two-stepping (a.k.a. dancing around the obvious).
