SC House Takes a Week Off? Priceless ...

In a rare bit of good news for the taxpayers, the South Carolina House of Pork ... we mean Representatives ... is taking next week off.

Every year, members of the House get a week off for Spring Break prior to Easter, and while they still receive their legislative salaries during this time period, members do forego thier mileage per diem and reimbursements.

According to most estimates, that saves taxpayers about $40,000 ... although the actual cost savings associated with these RINO tax-and-spenders being someplace where they can't spend your tax dollars probably number in the hundreds of millions.

Seriously folks, does this sound like a killer Mastercard ad in the making or what?

We here at FITS think it would go a little something like this ...

(Cue announcer voice)

"Forgoing Rep. Bill Herbkersman's weekly mileage reimbursement from Bluffton to Columbia? $142.18.

Forgoing Rep. Michael Thompson's weekly Maxim Magazine purchase at Capital Newsstand? $6.95.

Forgoing any emergency hair gel expenditures incurred by Rep. Gary Simrill? $24.71.

Not having to pay for a week's worth of Dewar's White Label Scotch for Rep. Annette Young? Priceless."

Enjoy your week of Zen, South Carolina income earners. They'll be back April 18.
