South Carolina must work to reform our flawed tax code. I will diligently encourage an end to excessive regulation and taxation of our industries and businesses. A thriving business community is the answer to many of our economic concerns. People must have jobs, and the government must work to find new and innovative ways to foster job creation even in difficult economic times. I believe in the people of South Carolina. I believe that people want to work, want to earn a paycheck, and want to contribute to the betterment of their children's future. Together we can get our economy moving again and protect South Carolina's Triple A credit rating with conservative government spending.
