Cool -- you know no Republican -- secured the nomination without first securing the state of South Carolina.
The Republican governor of that -- -- this right now governor -- the -- governor good to see you know what do you have any -- horses in this race.
I -- a person all of the great day in South Carolina and I appreciate being with you.
I don't have a horse in the race yet but boy am -- excited about the way the track -- -- -- when you look at the fact that we've got a tax attorney we've got a CEO we've got executives of states we've got.
You know just some strong candidates in the field November 2012 is looking better every day now -- -- yours is a right to work state does this battle going back and forth over Boeing and whether it can hire these 1000 workers than it already has.
You've made that the centerpiece.
It it didn't in just your.
You're speeches -- about making sure the South Carolina maintains that rights of work attraction.
And appeal how important is it that you hear that same message out of those candidates.
I -- what we need to hear is what they would've done with the NLRB decision if they were president this is the most un American decision I have ever seen happen.
What you have is a company that is great and as American -- -- Who's created a thousand jobs in south Carolina at the same time expanded 2000 jobs in Washington State.
And NLRB is trying to -- them it's wrong the president needs to speak -- he's been unbelievably south.
And either He needs to say He is for this union -- or he's not for but He cannot be silent and still go for a joint assembly of congress -- -- He wants to talk about job.
What if it was shut down and a court ruled that that.
-- can't do this would you as governor have any power.
To either overturn that move on that something about them.
I mean that is just not an option I don't know what powers I have but I would make sure that that doesn't happen we are six months ahead of schedule what Boeing.
We've got some very happy employees were the unions tried to come in and they told the turn right back around and go out they were very happy.
We it -- our state.
Cost of doing businesses low it's a strong right to work state we have.
Companies like BMW Michelin a Boeing that do great work here and they do -- without the unions because there's a great relationship between employees and -- employers.
I as governor will continue to fight for that right every day for our companies and our employees and Boeing.
Shutting down is just not an option.
Governor of yours the senator to do -- is not going to be watching and listening to the president tomorrow night in congress.
He's going to be meeting with the Boeing executives were told.
On what do you make of that.
I I think that -- senator demand has certainly fought for Boeing and senator demand continues to fight for what is right for.
South Carolinians as well as for America I'm gonna be watching because when a president calls the joint assembly of congress this better be great this better be baking -- they typically do this when mayor.
Basically saying -- going to war I hope what He sang if were going to war against the bowling of unions that we're going to war against tax increases that were going to war against any.
Mandatory regulations that are slowing our businesses down we're gonna start creating jobs He better say something great because He is certainly built it up to where it needs to be great and we.
Do not want to hear of sister stimulus plans we've been there we've done that we've increased our debt because of that and that is not what the American people want.
So -- 300 billion dollar jobs plan at a minimum amounts are White House correspondent Ed Henry was -- noting.
They gonna cut it -- for you.
I mean -- that have to be a joke it has to be a joke -- we've done a stimulus package before.
It didn't do anything but raise the debt it cost states to go into a world of trouble it's Groundhog Day all over again.
You can't do it a second time -- -- this time's going to be different and you want to add that money to state and local eight.
Know visit the -- more government needs to be shrinking if He wants to improve jobs in our country.
The best thing you can do is give stability to businesses you can say we're gonna do permanent tax -- this is what you can expect when you're doing your business plan.
This is what we're gonna do to make sure that you can go and start your business expand your business and there won't be tax increases He needs to give confidence of the people of this country by saying I'm not gonna have a roller coaster of a budget.
I'm not gonna have a roller coaster of tax issues that we're gonna go for but what I am gonna do is allow foreign investment to -- and in this country and established Johnson established.
Business on bail out the companies -- -- here in this country to be appreciated and expand based on the fact that we're gonna continue to be stable and tax.
Policy as well as -- regulatory policy of those are things He needs to be doing this is about stability and confidence and a time when the people of our country are backing -- You know a governor talked to a number of Republicans and those were very prominent presidential race.
And and others who are not what they're up there aren't Ed and music on background what they say is this.
We're just gonna -- everything the president's look you know we don't like what he's doing we don't like piling on more spending so we're essentially going to be.
It's stopping and Everett and at every pass and and it's sort of like -- out the clock.
And see if they can just beat him next year doing just that what do you think of that strategy.
-- I am fearful because we don't have time to run out the clock I mean me as governor of South Carolina every day out working to create jobs and in our state and every day the hardest part about my job is the federal government.
Whether it's me enforcing our illegal immigration policy whether it's having to deal with this health care mandate that they continue to want to push down.
It on our state budgets whether it's talking about stimulus packages or EPA regulations all of -- things that.
Continue to get in the way when I as governor trying to bring companies and our state companies and our country.
To create jobs the federal government keeps getting in the way the best thing the president could say tomorrow -- -- He will stay out of our way allow states to go on the free market work.
And create jobs the way we want to we would have made but -- much better result.
Doing that and for him to introduce a -- -- way of spending more government money it's it's really getting ridiculous I truly feel like this is a philosophical belief of his.
That He -- more tax dollars.
Will create a better situation but He needs to change the people that are advising him and understand you can't try something for a second time and expect different results.
I talked to former Reagan budget director.
The deficit is so big and the debt has gotten so out of control.
That for anyone to say you can't and shouldn't be looking at both revenues.
And spending cuts it's crazy what he's.
Well I you know this is not to blame one party the other -- said constantly that I think both parties made mistakes.
This -- debt limit that we are in and the debt crisis that -- and didn't happen from one party -- from both parties but what I will tell you.
Is what needs to happen is very much what we have done in South Carolina won a lot of governors have done around the country which is.
You don't look at where you can find more money you look at how you're spending you -- -- -- you say what is the role of government.
Government was intended to secure the rights and freedoms of the people it was never intended to be all things to all people so let's prioritize the dollars weekend.
Let's get creative like every small business guys and start planning not just for next year but for years 35 -- seven and figure out where we're gonna go.
This is -- serious time but it's a great opportunity.
The dollar is weak -- you've got companies from overseas that are looking to invest in our country looking to create jobs looking at.
Put their companies here for the first time you've got companies that are here that desperately want to expand they just need to know their stability and confidence so.
You know while they want to talk about revenues I'm still gonna tell you that what has gotten us through in South Carolina as we focused on the expenses the taxpayers are paying enough right now.
The businesses are paying enough right now leave them alone that's just not the groups we need to -- Governor very good chatting with you again governor and you know it.
In Columbia south and -- thank you governor.
