Re: “Tim Scott's inspirational story is far from inspirational

Tim Scott attributes much of his success to the mentoring he received from Chick-fil-A operator John Moniz about the value of education and hard work and freedom. These are the principles on which a thriving middle class society are based, not government welfare programs, which can cushion the fall in hard times but will never get you back on your feet.

Re: “Head-scratcher o’ the day: Tim Scott opposes Obamacare because people are uninsured

The Affordable Care Act is in the process of taking over 20% of GDP under the guise of providing health insurance to the uninsured. Tim Scott notes that if this program leaves 31 million people uninsured after ten years, it is a complex, bureaucratic, job-destroying program that did not even fix half of the program.

Alternatively, we could allow the sale of health insurance across state lines, eliminate restrictions on health provider competition such as certificates of need for new hospitals, and give tax deductions on health insurance to individuals instead of their employees. After making these changes, there will remain some folks who want health insurance but don't have enough money. We should give them a reasonable amount of money sufficient to buy the coverage they need. The above measures will involve minimal bureaucracy, no healthcare exchanges, no mandates to buy insurance, and no IRS.

Re: “Tim Scott goes MIA during Ted Cruz's futile filimonster

Only 18 senators voted with Cruz to defund Obamacare.

Tim Scott was one of the 18.

Sounds good to me.

Re: “Medal of Honor Society plans to build $100M museum at Patriots Point

A Medal of Honor Museum for all branches of the miltary should not be built in a Navy-oriented location. Somewhere near Arlington Cemetery in Virginia would be more appropriate.

Also, when this $100 million musuem in Mount Pleasant starts losing money, the taxpayers of South Carolina will most assuredly will be asked to bail it out. Don't pay any attention to insincere assurances to the contrary made now in order to get public support.

Re: “Glenn McConnell shows Nikki Haley who's boss

It is true. After observing "reporters" mix facts, opinions, and occasional falsehoods for more than a decade, I have no clue what it means to be a reporter.
