Today's editorial notes that Gov. Sanford is no stranger to the "savior-based economics" he decried on national TV this week:
Gov. Mark Sanford gained national notoriety recently with his comment on CNN that America is headed toward a "savior-based economy." In reaction to the stimulus package under construction in Congress, the governor said a better approach to restoring long-term growth would be to overhaul the nation's economic fundamentals with a regime of low taxes and reduced federal spending.
"A problem that was created with building up too much debt will not be solved with yet more debt," Sanford told moderator John King.
