FORTY ONE PERCENT JERSEYS AWARDED TO STATE REPRESENTATIVES, SENATORS
FITSNews – July 2, 2007 – For their awesome work growing the size of state government by 41% over the last three years, South Carolina legislators (well, those who aren’t in the Nikki Haley Caucus, anyway) were awarded official throwback jerseys by Major League Baseball today.
The stylish jerseys, modeled after the famous 1969 New York Mets’ threads, feature the name “S.C. Spending” and a big “41%” stitched onto them. Interestingly enough, the 41% figure is approximately four times the growth rate of population plus inflation in South Carolina over the same time period. Not to mention the growth of South Carolinians’ personal incomes.
