South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint did the country a great service earlier this month by resigning from the Senate to take a plus job with a partisan think tank. His replacement will be Representative Tim Scott who is currently serving out his term in the House.
The House of Representatives just decided not to approve a Republican plan that would have allowed the Bush era tax cuts to remain for everyone making less than $1 million a year, because, horror upon horror, it would have raised taxes on those making more than $ 1 million a year. Here is how Representative Scott reacted.
On his way to pay his respects to Inouye, Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said he had “no clue” what was happening with Plan B. Asked whether he planned to vote for it, he said again: “I have no clue.”
Ah yes, the mantra of a South Carolina Republican, a phrase that always fits, “I have no clue”.
