#TXLEGE: Across ideological spectrum, Texas Media SILENT on new local debt ##'s

"The rich rules over the poor,
And the borrower is servant to the lender."
Proverbs 22:7

On Monday, the comptroller's office released the latest local government debt figures.  TPPF picked it upSo did we.

How about the rest of Texas Media?!?
  • Austin American Statesman -- NOTHING.
  • Ft. Worth Star Telegram -- NOTHING.

    [Note: Check out what the Star Telegram did publish on the same day the local debt ##'s came out.]
  • San Antonio Express News -- NOTHING.
We know what you're thinking: The DAMN LIBRUL MEDIA (tm) is suppressing the story.

So how did conservative media outlets, specifically those who focus on fiscal policy, perform?!?
  • Empower Texans/Texas Scorecard -- NOTHING.
Bottom Line: Texas has the second highest per capita local government debt in the country; it sure would be nice if more of our voters understood that reality....
