What Do You Think Memorial Day Was All About?
Now is not the time to give in~ The Texas Legislature has gone into a Special Session and now is the time to Fight to KEEP TEXAS STRONG!!
As JoAnn Fleming said in her latest call to action…….
It’s time to make your voice heard…again! Folks, we have to fight until there are no more options available. Do not just sit back and let this happen without a whimper! To those who are “exhausted,” remember that George Washington and his rag-tag group of patriots were tired, had no shoes, barely any clothes or weapons, and were up to their waists in snow…and they fought on.
What do you think Memorial Day was all about? Do you think the American Soldier gets tired? If we are to keep Texas strong, we must take action. If some of us can work unpaid and spend our household money to stay in Austin when we’d rather be home with our families, and spend countless hours reading these bills, studying the budget, arguing with legislators, and sending out these calls to action, you can make a phone call!
Texas Legislature’s Wild Spending Spree Passes…26% increase!
No matter how the state Republican Party and the House and Senate leadership spin it, they’ve increased spending 26%. In 2011, lawmakers spent a grand total of $84 billion (this does not even include dedicated or federal funds). In the 2013 regular session which just ended yesterday, your legislature spent more than $106 billion.
Fight for a Strong Texas…Speak UP now! Thank you…JoAnn & the TEA Party Caucus Advisory Committee.
