DeadLast issues S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley her new report card. Ms. Haley is fond of passing judgement on the state legislature, periodically issuing “report cards” on their performance. Not surprisingly, her grades are determined by whether legislators agree with her politically or not. What you will never, ever hear Ms. Haley mention are the actual facts related to the state of the state, for which she is presumably somewhat responsible. So, check out the real numbers and you can determine the grades you would assign. I’ve provided mine.
Several times a year, when I can bear to look at the number, I update a series of South Carolina public health indicators at my website DeadLast. Every indicator is linked to its source. You might have some idea of what you will find here already. If not, maybe the website name will give you a hint.
