S.C. House Speaker Bobby Harrell recently issued a press release, not surprisingly, patting himself and his Republican colleagues on the back for their supposed fiscal conservatism.
While such hyperbole is easily dismissed, what was surprising was a comment included in the release from US Senator Jim DeMint:
“Every day in Washington, it’s a battle to cut taxes and spending…often times putting me at odds even with those in my own party. So when I look home to South Carolina, I am encouraged by the common sense conservative commitment of House Speaker Bobby Harrell and the SC House Republican Caucus in their work to pass greater transparency in voting, over $20 billion in tax cuts and limit government growth,” stated Senator Jim DeMint.
Over $20 billion in tax cuts?!?
