Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The way our state and the country looks right now at taxes, Government spending really came to a head this week in Texas.
Everyone is so busy right now with the gun grab or immigration proposals, many missed
a basic example of what is wrong with the way many politicians see things.
Governor Perry this week announces Texas, once again was in the black.
We took in more money than was budgeted for.
So now, he's doing something very controversial in the mean time in this feed me, clothe me, take care of me politics.
He brought up the idea of amending the Texas Constitution to give taxpayers back
some of their hard-earned money.
Have you ever heard of such a thing?
So many cities and states right now in the dumper.
They went broke mainly paying for social programs.
We have our problems, but wow.
We've really accomplished something here in Texas.
We're doing so well right now, Governor Perry is always being bashed by the media, which is mainly left-wing, because I don't think they don't like the fact we have a good story to tell.
The county is swimming in red ink but they don't seem to worry about that or think
something is awry.
But, back to our story.
We're in the black.
What to do with the surplus?
Enter Democratic State Rep. Naomi Gonzales of El Paso.
She immediately takes a shot at Perry and says, she doesn't know what parallel
universe he's living in.
She says "How are we going to spend that money?"
Do you see the difference in approach?
That's your money, not hers to spend.
Let's give it back or save it.
Nice try, Naomi.
That's my point of view what's yours?
