Citing the continuing need for choices in government, a source inside the Governor’s office made clear that the Governor will be asking for tax credits for those property owners who choose to secure their property with private security or fire services.
“It is not fair that I have a 1.3 million dollar home and have to pay for the private security in my gated community and pay taxes for educrats, policecrats and fat fireman,” stated one upstate member of the House who supports the Governor’s measure.
The Governor’s spokesman pointed out by not having state paid for private public safety choice, South Carolinians were getting inefficient police and fire services. “Police officers and fire fighters are as bad as teachers in masking as heroes when if in fact they are just lazy bureaucrats who need competition from the private sector, “ the spokesman stated.
The money for the private public safety tax credit program is planned to come from the remainder of the local government fund in the state budget, leaving some to believe that local public safety agencies will see drastic cuts.
“Those cuts are what’s needed,” stated a blogger who supports the Governor, “I have dealt with law enforcement personally, and I say the fewer of them, the better. Maybe now we can make prostitution legal.”
“Besides,” stated the upstate member of the House with the 1.3 million dollar house, “if some people can not afford private public safety fees, perhaps they are not supposed to make it. This is the real world, and not everybody’s a winner.”
