    I think you are an extreme partisan hack.

    Come on, this isn't news. It's an editorial based on the alleged opinion of unverified and unidentified alleged GOP "insiders". Doesn't the left have anything better to do than attack successful women?

    You're asking for Willow to make sense, that's asking for too much.

    COLUMBIA | Haley vetoes cut state spending by $213 M | The Herald - Rock Hill, SC

    Haley said her goal was to limit growth in state spending to the rate of inflation plus population growth, a difference of $75.6 million from the Legislature's proposed $6 billion budget.


    <SNIP>


    Haley's budget vetoes set out a number of policies:

    &#8226; Better-than-expected revenues should go to tax relief, rebates or to pay off state debt

    &#8226; Piecemeal adjustments to state education formulas are no longer acceptable

    &#8226; Lawmakers should not use the state budget to restructure state government.
    Many of the vetoes were not a surprise.

    Haley repeatedly has opposed including the Arts Commission, S.C. ETV and the presidential primary in the state budget, for example.

    Haley said she vetoed the bus money because the state will seek bids to privatize its school bus service.

    Haley said she vetoed other items -- including $1.7 million for the University Center in Greenville and $1.4 million to help students transition from high school to college -- because the state already funds other, similar programs.

    Seems simple enough.
