It should be no surprise that, in a #TXlege session where comity was the highest goal, higher spending & promises delivered for the Government Class but disappointment for the taxpayer was the result.
Texas’ legislature meets only for 4 months every two years. With such political compression in a state this large, a legislative session SHOULD be contentious. Great issues are in debate and the stakes are great.
For bad ideas to be defeated, their advocates must be defeated. And for great ideas to prevail, their advocates must not only seek to persuade, but also exercise power when the time comes.
If a Texas legislative session is not contentious, that tells you the fix is in.
The fix was in.
Comity is an improper goal for a #TexLege session.
