Day Before Session: JoAnn Fleming

"Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come."
Proverbs 31:25

JoAnn Fleming addresses the pre-84th #TXLEGE Tea Party event:

  • "These high maintenance elected officials, it's like being pecked to death by a bunch of Chickens."
  • Texas electorate - 1/3 D, 1/3 R, 1/3 Tea Party;
    • "We've done that with virtually no money."
  • Working from the ground up provides sustainability.
  • Tea Party is framing the debate.
  • At TPPF last week, Workman and Estes were falling over themselves to talk about how much they agree with the Tea Party.

  • Hire slow, fire fast.
  • "There's no going up from a C rating."
  • "Someday is here."

  • We are GOING to reform TxDOT.
  • It's past time to untangle our finances from the Federal government.
  • Don Huffines' idea of term-limiting agency heads is an idea who's long past.
  • They like to delay hearings or hold them in the middle of the night
    • Written testimony is a good way to get around the games.
  • Byron Cook says he has a "heart" for illegals.
