When the Tea Party first went to Washington, they carried posters depicting our President as an African savage and they spit on black Congressmen. After the President's last address to the public the Republican Party AND the Tea Party aired responses. The Tea Party is a POLITICAL PARTY. They should NOT be granted tax-exempt status. NEVER!
Everybody who has a valid Voter Registration Card should go to their county elections office and get the new photo voter ID. If you ever lose your driver's license (I'm nearly 80 and worry about that) you will still be able to vote without being hassled.
All these ignorant politicians (and some columnists) need to study science. We are really in for a bad time because of climate change. Moving to different energy sources, which is more likely with a carbon tax, would slow the climate changes. Just remember their stand when the next big storm hits SC or Charleston floods.
Remember that 97% of climate researchers (and a few droughts, wild fires, storms, record temperatures, etc.) tell us that temperatures are going to keep going up and the price of disasters will continue to rise.
We should ask the Legislature to slow this bill down and give us specific examples of the effects of passing this bill. Note that the bill taxes services. Which services?
Will there be an additional tax on car repairs?
Will there be a tax on going to a doctor? Or a dentist?
Will there be a tax on having my hair cut?
Will the sales tax on cars be increased and no longer subject to a cap?
The questions go on and on. The answers are lost in legal jargon. What, exactly, would this bill do? We need answers.
If Lee Bright challenges Graham, SC may get a Democratic senator. Lee Bright is just too far out for most of us.
