BUT WE’Z GOTS A LOTTA KUDZU
FITSNews – July 26, 2007 – While state spending in South Carolina lept tall buildings in a single bound last year, the average South Carolinian’s ability to pay for the government explosion didn’t grow anywhere near as quickly. Palmetto State workers saw their paychecks increase by just 0.8% in 2006, compared to a 13% growth in government.
We’re not all that great at math or anything, but we’re pretty sure that sucks.
Of course, when your state’s top two budget writers are busy extolling the virtues of the Soviet economy or funneling tax dollars to sports complexes named after their pappies, what the hell do you expect?
The good news is we have a sh*t-ton of Kudzu down here and as soon as we figure out a way to make money off of it – watch out America!
