Agreed. However truth and politics is about as likely as utopia.

They need to learn how to cut spending and tax properly. It's the state's fault that they can't pass a damn budget and this is Ahhhhnold's way of telling them to get it the eff done.

Re: how to balance the budget?

Here is an idea.

The Reds and Blues go to their separate corner and devise a plan. Then the two sides meet in the middle on both plans. Working together, setting aside party lines, and just FIX IT.

Have you ever heard of this country called the United States of America. It was built upon limited government and created the most free and prosperous country in the history of mankind. You should try reading and studying some history sometime. The founding fathers were some pretty smart guys.

As usual, you're off in Bizarro world with your facts and you like to claim Rs spout theories as proven facts. That's better than spouting completely incorrect facts as fact any day of the week.

In education South Carolina ranks slightly below the national avg. 26th on this site:

Smartest State Factors

at the National Center for Education Stats it varies based on subject,
looking at 8th grade math SC is around 30th, in Grade 8 reading 43rd overall. What was interesting in both polls, for the state you continue to slam as racist, is the scores for minority students were in comparatively higher percentiles nationally than white students.

State Profiles.net

Unemployment is SC in May of 2007 was 5.5%. Unemployment in SC is currently at 11%, with a high of 12.5% in Jan. 2010, at the height of the Obama Recession. Keep in mind the People's Republic of California's unemployment is at 12.4%. If I remember correctly auto manufacturing is a large employment segment in SC, that may explain the elevated rate more than Republican control of the state-house.

As for balancing the budget, I would advocate implementing the FairTax and temporarily elevate the rate with the elevated % of it exclusively for debt reduction and not put into the general fund. Once the entitlement programs/debt interest are reformed and under control the rate would reduce to a "normal" rate. Spending, start off with a 5% across the board cut to all agencies.
