    SC session ends as a flop; Lawrence J. McQuillan on America's pension crisis

    in Politics Conservative

    Showtime 8AM-10AM EST


    South Carolina's General Session ends pretty much the same way as the US Congress...One Big Flop! It seems getting half, or less, of a job done is becoming the acceptible practice in State as well as National politics. Join me "In the Pickle Barrel" as we start the morning looking at the failures and successes of the SC political leadership.


    At the 9AM EST slot, Lawrence J. McQuillan, economist and Independent Institute Senior Fellow, exposes how skyrocketing costs of public employee retirement benefits have created a nassive unfunded liability crisis. Be prepared to be shocked!


    I look forward to seeing your comments in the live online chatroom or taking your call live on air at 855-236-2486.

    Hr3  Unions want farmers to pay 20 years of back dues to help them with their current situation. Not that they've helped them over the last 20 years...


    Unions & Gov. Jerry Brown REFUSE to allow Hispanic farmworkers votes to be counted. Forced union thuggery.


    Non-citizens vote in our elections, and the federal govt refuses to do anything to stop it. Proof of citizenship not required.


    Why would we listen to a gazillionaire. They have no idea how the market & economy work. GEEZ! Talking about Steve Wynn's comment saying economic recovery is "pure fiction."

    Chew the Phat Kewl Khat: Peter Ferrara From Forbes On Welfare Reform!

    in Politics

    Can welfare reform end poverty in America? Peter Ferrara believes it can. Peter is a great article writer and a great contributer to Forbes! Peter has writen numerous articles about many different subjets of interest. Do not be surprised if he wakes you up to what welfare reform will mean to our country as a whole. Come listen to Peter Ferrara speak and answer questions that anyone may have about how our government spends over a trillion dollars a year on welfare! Call in and share your two cents on this issue. Call in at 1-347-677-1837.


    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.

    Will Small Business Gain From Corporate Tax Overhaul? - SBEC's Ray Keeting

    in Entrepreneur

    The Obama Administration and Congress have been at odds for months over a major overhaul of U.S. Corporate tax laws. Everyone seems to agree that something should be done but how will small business owners benefit? 


     Raymond J. Keating who serves as chief economist with the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council), a nonpartisan, nonprofit small-business advocacy group, says corporate tax reform alone won't get the job done and instead insists it has to be comprehensive across the board tax reform. Keeting, who talks with host Kelly Scanlon, maintains small business owners who employee 55 percent of the private sector workforce and earn more than 60 percent of net business income shouldn't be ignored.


    Keeting writes, speaks and testifies on a wide range of issues affecting the entrepreneurial sector of the economy.
