Robert Romano: All Eyes On Tim Scott

WILL SOUTH CAROLINA SENATOR INVESTIGATE BARACK OBAMA’S “NEIGHBORHOOD ENGINEERING” SCHEME? Last week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in co-sponsoring legislation by Sen.

WILL SOUTH CAROLINA SENATOR INVESTIGATE BARACK OBAMA’S “NEIGHBORHOOD ENGINEERING” SCHEME?

Last week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in co-sponsoring legislation by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) that would prohibit the use of federal funds by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to implement the regulation known as “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing“(AFFH).

The rule conditions eligibility for community development block grants upon redrawing zoning maps to achieve racial and income integration. All that is required is a mere accusation by HUD of not being in compliance. In 2014, HUD dispersed about $3.4 billion of these grants to roughly 1,200 counties and cities, putting every one of them into the Obama administration’s crosshairs.

Cruz and Rubio are among the leading contenders for the Republican presidential nomination, so their dual support is noteworthy enough. And with the race turning south and all eyes on South Carolina, a natural question to ask might be where Sen. Tim Scott is on this issue.

After all, Scott chairs the Senate Banking Subcommittee Chairman on Housing, Transportation, and Community Development and as such should be able to outline exactly just how screwed up President Barack Obama’s vast overreach in this area has been.

According to South Carolina-based FITSNews, Scott has promised to hold a hearing on the issue:

“Last year Scott’s office indicated it was investigating the ‘neighborhood engineering’ rule — promulgated by Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Hearings were likely, we were told.”

But so far, no hearings have been scheduled, according to the Banking Committee’s website.

What gives?

the people who deny neighborhood engineering are reaping their benefits of living the life of a bigot and pretending they are not, period.

I still say they need to start in Martha’s Vineyard or Chappaqua NY would be a good start also.

Why yes—all eyes ARE on Tim Scott—he’s so black—so PC—so hot—and
the thing that’s well not so funny

Is ole airhead Tim ONLY serves blacks—as he and Haley
planned—and white folk who are sending him money

But if you’re worried about Obama—better slap his AND Tim’s
mama—because thanks to flag-ripping Haley we figga

The only U.S. senators left for South Carolina voters are
lesbian-appointing Grahamnesty and Haley’s self-serving… !!!

Sounds much like Claudia from Scott’s office, “Those records were destroyed in the move”. Right. Just don’t deal with it.

SC conservative politicians are only conservative if it does not matter. They are for every lost cause possible, but when the money is flowing and the Establishment is passing out favors, the SC politicians line up like lap dogs.

Rubio endorsements and Obama’s neighborhood engineering are but the last two examples of our conservative sellouts.

Some say Timmy hangs out in the same DC clubs as Lindsay, but you didn’t hear that from me.

I wonder how Senator Scott feels now that he has been lied too over the Relic Room renovations and this is being combined with the soon to be mishandled 40 million from our tax dollars for the Hunley. Randy Burbage already sued over misuse of funds and Leland Summers, the SCV sell out on the flag, sure smells like another greased palm to me.
