Crony capitalism is a bipartisan endeavor. Democrats do it. Republicans do it.
It’s not all Nikki Haley’s fault. The Republican led legislature keeps upping the subsidies to business beyond her requests. But it doesn’t appear that Ms. Haley is fighting these subsidies either.
Again, “the party of small government.”

Gov. Haley “has shown a pattern of approving massive increases in the ‘deal closing fund,’” an annual appropriation used to attract corporations to do business in the state that has grown from $5 million in FY 2012 to more than $45.3 million this year—an 807 percent increase in just four years.
