Fiscal Responsbility Texas House

Filed under: Culture, Politics | Tags: , ,

The Texas House of Representatives was given a grade on their votes for fiscal issues in this past House session and special session. Passing grade is 70 % although I have to admit for me it is much higher, say 90%. However let us stick with the grades as given by Empower Texans, here is the URL if you want to see it for yourself: https://index.empowertexans.com/indexes/2017-index/house#tables

It is disheartening to see how many of those who claim to be Republicans failed even the 70% mark. However it is obvious that this would be the case, these people are really not Republicans, they are Republicrats instead. They kowtow to the Demoncrats and give away the house.

N/A

Of course as the speaker of the House Joe Straus doesn’t vote, but he is the one who decides what issues even get to committee, and what committee it is. He also is responsible for the chairs of each of the committees. He has said that he would not allow the governors agenda to be passed, even though it is the agenda that the people of the State of Texas, at least the majority since there are some democrats in the State, but the majority of the citizens wanted this agenda to pass.

As a member of the Constitution Party of Texas I am not surprised, since Republicrats and Demopublicans are really one and the same. It is time for this to change, we need those who believe in the Constitution as the law of the land, to come over to our party, join us and rid us of these career politicians who want to line their own pockets at the expense of we the citizens (taxpayers) of the State of Texas. Come and be a part of the solution, lets end this stranglehold that the Progressives have on Austin, let us bring back the Constitution and its guarantees of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In other words get the government off our backs and out of our wallets.
