A THREAD: Being a mechanical engineer for 25+ years, I love math! I appreciate the fact I get to use it as the proud Representative for Texas House District 135 in the Texas Legislature. So, let’s do a little math. #DoTheMath #txlege
We’ll be breaking down the real life effect of SB 2 and HJR 3, bills that were “supposed” to positively impact Texans. Spoiler alert: they don’t. #DoTheMath #txlege
Hypothetical: If you were to save $100/yr (averages out to $1.90/wk.), under this property tax “relief” proposal, which you won’t, you couldn’t buy your regular cup of coffee a week. That, my friends, is not working for everyday Texans. #DoTheMath #txlege
Households making $38k/year and under would have to pay for this property tax cut. Meaning one less tank of gas a month to get to work. I thought this was supposed to be helping, instead they are making it harder for you to drop off your kids at childcare. #DoTheMath #txlege
80% of Texas households would end up paying more in state and local taxes overall. This bill doesn't help the majority of Texans. See the chart below from our friends at the @CPPP_TX of what happens to our most vulnerable Texans if sales taxes increase. #DoTheMath #txlege
Texas has the highest uninsured rate in the country, sky rocketing property taxes, a broken school finance system and to top it off, legislators want to add on and increase YOUR sales tax, making life harder. That's not good policy or math. #DoTheMath #txlege
