Joblessness continues to rise in South Carolina while U.S. Rep. John Spratt votes 98.2 percent with the Washington cartel: Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Barack Obama.
From July to August, joblessness rose from a terrible 10.7 percent to a horrific 11 percent. Unemployment was 4.6 percent when Mr. Spratt and his party took control of Congress in January 2007. The Dow was 12,621.
Last month, the private sector, which pays the taxes that Mr. Spratt loves to spend, just lost another 2,200 jobs in South Carolina.
