#TXLEGE: house "leadership" makes its bed (now they lie in it)

"That they may successfully do evil with both hands—
The prince asks for gifts,
The judge seeks a bribe,
And the great man utters his evil desire;
So they scheme together."
Micah 7:3

We're currently sitting in the house gallery for the "debate" on the taxpayer-funded lobbying bill.  They're currently discussing some point of order about something.  We have no idea how the point of order will be resolved.  At this point, we honestly don't care.

This bill might pass.  It might not.  Either way, the bill has been so badly gutted that the real world impact of its passage will be miniscule.

But house 'leadership,' led by Dennis Bonnen, made their decision over the weekend.

Last Friday, we wrote:
If those bills get done, we've had an ok session.

If those bills don't get done, it'll get really ugly.

Just look at what's happening with the Tories in the U.K.
It's now Monday, and none of those bills are getting done.

The ugliness is going to commence shortly.  We have no idea what form it will take.  But the Tories in the U.K. are a good guess.

Bottom Line: The next few years are going to be fascinating to watch....
