#TXLEGE: YOU trust these people?!?

"He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets;
Therefore do not associate with one who flatters with his lips."
Proverbs 20:19

Obviously, the big three held their press conference this afternoon:

On the surface, this looks...kinda...ok.  The rollback rate changes are certainly good.  The tax compression falls within the range of "good enough."

But one comment from Governor Abbott lingers.  Towards the end of the press conference, he said the school finance bill would be "several hundred pages."  Do you trust a school finance bill that's "several hundred pages" released three days before sine die?!?

'Cause this website sure as...heck...doesn't.

Which is a shame.  Because there's a case that this package represents modest progress.  But each of those "several hundred pages" potentially contains toxic seeds.

Bottom Line:  The package announced this afternoon might improve upon the status quo.  It might be everything that they're claiming.  But when people with no credibility drop "several hundred page" bills three days before sine die it...warrants skepticism.
