#TXLEGE: An Embarrassment to Dogs and Ponies....

"Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin."
James 4:17

We're currently sitting in the house gallery, watching the so-called debate on the state budget.

They're just going through the motions.  There's no vision, or guidance, or sense of where they want to take the state.  It's government on autopilot.  But Democrats want to spend even more....

Which is pretty crazy, considering how much Republicans want to spend.

But the worst part is the Republicans' inability to answer completely obvious questions.

Case in point: We just watched an exchange between Chris Turner and Gina Hinojosa over child care.  The details aren't important, except that they were asking for more money.  They were pitching increased spending on child care subsidies as a way to 'help' struggling families.

Had any Republican been smart about it, they could have pointed out that government expenditures on child care make it more expensive.  Thus, the best way to help struggling families afford child care is to keep the government away from it.  Make Chris Turner and Gina Hinojosa defend making child care more expensive.

Instead, we only get languid, tepid, passivity.

And more spending.

A LOT of spending.

Bottom Line: This is how Republics die....
