This week your state Rep. Brandon Newton voted for the illegal state budget.
Once again, state legislators refused to follow the state budget transparency law (SC Code Section 11-11-90). They did not hold joint, open hearings on the Governor’s budget as the law requires.
Instead, they decided how to spend our money in small, obscure meetings only lobbyists and politicians know about – and most working South Carolinians can’t attend.
The result of breaking the state budget transparency law?
- our tax dollars will continue to be laundered to state legislator’s personal businesses, their girlfriend’s charities and non-profits run by their campaign staff
- our tax dollars will continue to fund secret pet projects like a $19 million convention center in Greenville, $2 million tennis courts in Sumter and $500,000 walking trails in Lancaster
- Republican and Democrats vote together to spend nearly a BILLION (with a “b”) dollars more of our tax money than they did last year
In addition to the corruption and pork, Brandon Newton’s vote in favor of the entire illegal state budget means more taxpayer-funded subsidies to Planned Parenthood – the largest abortion provider in the nation.
State government employees with health insurance provided by taxpayers can use Planned Parenthood services.
Brandon Newton needs to hear from you right now.
Call and/or text and tell them their vote for the illegal state budget is unacceptable to you.
Tell Brandon Newton we need MORE transparency not less when it comes to our tax dollars. Tell them they need to follow the state budget transparency law (SC Code: 11-11-90).
