Texas House Nears Vote

The Houston Chronicle reported:

The Texas House got back to work Sunday, rushing through the remainder of the next bare-bones state budget before an expected vote.

In all, the budget proposal spends $164.5 billion over the next two years in state and federal dollars. That's about $23 billion less than what is in the current budget. Republican leaders, in firm control of the Legislature, are vowing to balance the budget without raising new taxes.

It's not a bare bones budget.  It's bone crushing.

Update:  The House budget passed 98-49.  This means the Job Decimator Gang will ride herd on the Concho Valley   Only Lone Senator Robert Duncan can stop the plague.
