South Carolina's unemployment rate is 12.6%, one of the five highest rates in the entire country. Although the addition of Boeing and the wind-turbine facilities will help the economies of Charleston County and South Carolina, state government cannot become complacent; Peter McCoy will lead the charge of recruiting more "Boeings" to the area.
Peter will help small business owners and taxpayers already in the District with common-sense policies that reduce the regulations and taxes that hurt job growth. McCoy is a supporter of House Bill 3992, which will simplify the tax code and help employers create new jobs. Furthermore, McCoy will fight for South Carolina's right to sovereignty under the 9th and 10th amendments of the U.S. Constitution to ensure businesses in South Carolina are not affected by federal health care and can actually hire new employees.
