Good For Nikki Haley

GOVERNOR IS RIGHT TO ELIMINATE UNFILLED POSITIONS …

This website rarely praises S.C. governor Nikki Haley – because she rarely does anything to protect our bottom line as taxpayers.  Seriously … it’s embarrassing what a big government gal she’s become.

But we do believe in giving credit where it is due, and Haley does deserve some of it for proposing to get rid of more than 550 vacant state positions.

These are jobs that have sat unfilled for more than a year … which leads to the unavoidable conclusion that these positions are not necessary to the functioning of government.

“If the state has open positions, they should not let them sit vacant,” Haley told The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper.

Instead, Haley wants these positions analyzed to determine if they are necessary.

Good.  That’s a sensible view to take …

Now if only Haley were equally sensible when it came to cutting unnecessary positions that are currently filled.

Then we might be getting somewhere …
