Trib Poll Continues to find that Voters are Incoherent Dimwits

"A fool has no delight in understanding,
But in expressing his own heart."
Proverbs 18:2

For crying out loud:
Texas voters still think that property taxes are too high and that the state spends too little on public education, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.
Taxes too high...but spending too low.  Got it.  SMDH.

If you're wondering why things are the way that they are in politics, this is a pretty good place to start.

For as much as you can make any number of criticisms about how state government operates, the truth is that legislators are often responding rationally to the incentives they face.

Cuz legislators get a lot more polling on this subject that we do.

Bottom Line: This is why elected officials tend to find debt to be the path of least resistance.  That doesn't make it good.  Or right.  But it is an explanation.
