Ed Rumsey Statement on Today’s House Adjournment

“Today’s vote to adjourn, along with his votes to override the first 2 of
the 3 votes on the governor’s vetoes, demonstrates once again what a clear
choice the voters of District 2 have when they go to the polls on June 10th.
On the one hand, they have Bill Sandifer, who repeatedly has shown his
contempt for the governor and his efforts to cut government spending and me,
who the governor came to Seneca to endorse. When I’m elected, I can promise
that I’ll be an ally to Governor Sanford in his attempts to bring
conservative values and common sense fiscal restraint back to South
Carolina.”

The South Carolina Club for Growth issued a statement today regarding the
South Carolina House of Representatives’ decision to adjourn after taking up
only three of Governor Sanford’s appropriations vetoes.

“Today’s adjournment came shortly after Rep. Dan Cooper saw that too many
legislators were standing up for taxpayers by supporting the governor’s
vetoes.  It was shocking that he made a motion to adjourn for the weekend –
even though it was just past 2:00 pm on a Thursday.” said Matt Moore,
Executive Director of SC Club for Growth.

“Big-spending liberals in the House today showed their true colors by
cutting and running after they were defeated.  By voting to adjourn rather
than continuing to stand with the governor, certain legislators proved their
true addiction to spending.  It’s simply wrong that the status-quo
legislators will use this extra time to twist arms and cut more backroom
deals that are bad for taxpayers,” said Moore.
