Bonnen prioritizes Lobbyists and Liberals on taxes....
"Therefore by their fruits you will know them."
Fun times: Two months into the 85th Texas legislature, the Texas House's tax writing committee is finally going to hold their first hearing this coming Wednesday; you'll never guess who Chairman Dennis Bonnen invited to testify (actually, you'll totally guess):
Notice who's NOT on the list: The Texas Public Policy Foundation.
What this means: Lots of special-interest carve out bills along with a staged fight to "prevent tax increases."
Bottom Line: With Dennis Bonnen chairing the Ways and Means committee again this session, this isn't even remotely surprising though it is both revealing and (in it's own weird way) pretty funny.
