Your state Rep. Steven Long (R - Spartanburg County) is pushing a bill that would create a "golden parachute" for local politicians by giving them lifetime benefits at taxpayer expense.
H.3128 would add part-time politicians on school boards across South Carolina to the state pension and health insurance plans.
Read more about it here.
Our state employee pension system is already facing a deficit of up to $80 billion (with a "b"). The state employee health insurance program has a projected $11 billion (with a "b") shortfall.
Steven Long's liberal "golden parachute" for politicians plan would make things worse for us...much worse.
According to our state Constitution, if legislators can't make debt payments to creditors, a new, automatic statewide tax on all of our property will kick-in to make up the difference for what is owed.
Call your state Rep. Steven Long right now and demand he vote against his own liberal "golden parachute" for politicians bill (H.3128).
