TELL LAWMAKERS “NO MORE” PASSING THE BUCK … 

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has been the most vocal statewide opponent of efforts to raise South Carolina’s gasoline tax … and we’ve consistently praised him for his efforts.

How come?  Well, you can read our latest coverage of this issue HERE, but the bottom line is state government doesn’t need any more money … oh, and tapped out taxpayers can’t afford to give up any more money.  So, state lawmakers need to prioritize core functions of government with the more-than-abundant resources they’ve been provided – and stop sticking S.C. taxpayers (who already pay a disproportionately high percentage of their income on fuel) with yet another bill.

This week Loftis – and other limited government allies – are promoting a petition which calls on state leaders to oppose any gas tax increase that doesn’t include “transparency and accountability” at the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT).

“The more you learn about the management of road funding it becomes obvious that it’s not fair to consider an increase until we have real reform within the SCDOT,” the petition reads.

Wanna sign it?  Click HERE.

Upstate taxpayer advocates including Ron Tamaccio – who wrote this excellent guest column on SCDOT reform – are spearheading the effort, which has been promoted by local conservative radio hosts (including Tara Servatius of WORD AM).

Good for them …

Ha ha, for me, FitsNews gives me fits of laughter.

Here’s Tamaccio’s logic … SCDOT is too complicated for me to understand how they allocate and spend funds, therefore they are crooked and wasteful. SCDOT is LESS complicated than other state DOTs. That’s what you should remember.
Also, look the at the reports issued by the Reason Foundation. They list SCDOT as 4th in the nation in efficiency. That’s comparing how SCDOT compares against their peer agencies. Not against some imaginary expectation.

Here’s his other complaint … Our politician’s want to in charge of both what amount is collected and how it is spent. That is what I would call taxation WITH representation. Something a few people died for as I recall.

Maybe, but it’s an almost universal agreement that for every $1 spent on transportation that the taxpayer receives in excess of $1 in benefit. Especially when SC drivers are spending hundreds to thousands extra per year on the wear and tear of their vehicles due to the condition of our road system.

Reply
Mary March 6, 2015 at 5:19 pm

That wear and tear argument does not pass the smell test. Paving roads won’t stop road wear on cars. It might help some, but not much. I have been driving 30 years and I have not spent as much as you guys claim…I suppose you pro-gas tax people drink and drive a lot.

Amanda March 6, 2015 at 5:48 pm

A lot of people drive long distances to work, to get groceries, to go to a doctor, to go to the post office, et al. You may live in a more urban or suburban place where you haven’t encountered a problem or maybe you drive a more expensive, stronger vehicle.

You can’t claim it doesn’t pass the smell test when you are one person living in one part of the state. Facts and economic studies both in-state and from AAA prove that it costs the average driver an extra few hundred dollars per year in wear and tear. Sure, wear and tear happens to any vehicle. But here in SC it is an accelerating and repetitive occurrence and those costs add up to a majority of drivers. Just ask any mechanic.

Using bombastic attacks like “you pro-gas tax people drink and drive a lot” isn’t intelligent or constructive. I am pro-fix the roads. I am tired of hitting potholes or having to swerve to avoid them. I am nervous when driving over bridges not know if it is one of the majority in the state that are in danger of failing. I just want safer and better roads.

boatontheroad March 7, 2015 at 7:23 am

I hit a pothole in the low country and broke a spring on my boat trailer. I could have paid increased gas taxes for many years for what it cost me to tow it in and repair it. True story. We need increased user taxes on fuel.

There has only been one independent poll so far and that was done by PPP of North Carolina (not the poll by state supported Winthorp University or the ones paid for by the special interest groups getting the money).

The independent poll by PPP has the no gas tax numbers at nearly $70%.

That is going to go higher as the anti-tax people start working and spending money. That tax ain’t going to pass this year.

I could not believe that the poll here was anywhere near the truth … which probably lies somewhere in between that 70% and the 50% here.

What does Loftis have against cutting the income tax? I guess he likes keeping his constituents paying higher taxes so he can bailout bloated agencies. I guess he doesn’t mind paying for expensive repairs each year on his fancy millionairemobile that he drives around. What he doesn’t understand is that no all of us are rich like him and that we actually have to work for a living. We are tired of sending our tax dollars to the treasury (aka Loftis) for him to send off to failing agencies and kickbacks to his campaign donors. We are tired of paying high taxes while we work when so many get benefit checks from the treasury for not working. Give us a plan or be quiet. I want lower income taxes and for everyone that uses the roads to pay for them. I support the Governor’s plan!

I wrote the Governor yesterday to thank her for her leadership and I called my State Representative and State Senator as well and asked them to support lowering the income tax.

There is an “expectations gap” between what auditors do and what the public expects, but auditors do have an obligation to detect and report material (emphasis added) fraud.

Perhaps a better definition is below. When the public ask for audit, they don’t realize that the “audits” are of little use. So, it is important to ask for forensic audits. and program or action specific audits. The LAC sometimes does this.

“The auditing “expectation gap” refers to the difference between (1) what the public and other financial statement users perceive auditors’ responsibilities to be and (2) what auditors believe their responsibilities entail.’

The public thinks an audit is designed to find fraud, waste and abuse. it is not though it will report it if the auditors stumble across it.

More audits March 7, 2015 at 4:57 pm

That doesn’t answer my question. If you are against audits, then why are you calling for additional audits? If they don’t work, then why waste more public dollars on them?

Several of these organizations have contributed generously to Curtis’ campaigns. Anyone who thinks they are out to get him probably needs to get their head examined. It makes no sense to contribute thousands of dollars to Curtis and then spend money against him. That would be a bad investment and private sector folks don’t waste money like that. If these organizations are guilty of anything it’s that they have helped support a nutcase like Curtis.

It sure is. Just check out their website and wikipedia. They are notorious liberals that cater to liberal people. Can’t answer why Loftis is working with them.

He associates with these liberal organizations because he abandoned his conservative credentials years ago. He works against our conservative governor, signs off on billions in debt, and spends exorbitantly on his office decor. The only groups that’ll have him are liberal organizations and the democrats he works with in the general assembly.

Gees, this is so silly. No one reading Fits is going to believe this juvenile junk. Go find something to do with your time. I am going to find soap so I can wash my eyes out. And a beer to wash out my mind!

Loftis associates with liberals because he is a Republican In Name Only. He’s a democrat disguised as a republican. A real republicans wouldnt vote with Leatherman to bail out agencies with every chance he gets. Leatherman says JUMP! and Curt says HOW HIGH?

Jakes, let’s stop. We have done our job. The liars and sinners and peddlers of filth have been exposed. To stay on this site will only darken our souls.

Let the people read their trash, thier sin, and let the people discern the truth. The Lord gives us the right to know for ourselves.

Men and women of character will be repulsed.

I wish to plead ignorance about the underlying argument. I came here to read about the gas tax. But let me say this before I leave:

This is some rarefied BS. If you people are not in middle school, something is wrong with you. Seriously wrong. Take all this elsewhere, even the Fits crowd is above this BS. You all should be ashamed of this display of juvenile trash talking.

Go find something to do with your time!
