Speaker Joe Straus Won’t Cap Spending ~ Do you Trust Moderates?

Speaker Joe Straus

Please take a look at this important issue facing Texas. 

From Michael Quinn Sullivan at Empower Texans…. Be Sure and click over and read about more important issues that Texans must prepare for the start of the legislative session – just 20 days from now!

Spending Limits

Legislation filed in advance of the 2013 session would strictly limit spending to the sum of population growth and inflation. Voters and taxpayers across the political spectrum have long supported this stronger limit on government.

Current law lets legislators set their own limit, and predictably they go with a non-limit: the projected growth in personal income. Just last month the Legislative Budget Board adopted the spending limit for the new budget — again exceeding the sum of population and inflation.

State Rep. Phil King of Weatherford, one of our Taxpayer Champions from 2011, has proposed legislation to fix that. He says that “it is very important that we implement a conservative spending cap to ensure that even in the good times, Texas does not become irresponsible with its taxpayers’ dollars.” 
Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst are on record supporting a stronger state spending limit; Speaker Joe Straus is not. 


To reinforce the message that electing a significant margin of conservative House representatives signals voter expectations of conservative House leadership, WomenOnTheWall.org has released Texas Speaker Showdown II – WE’RE BACK! video follow-up to the 2010 Speaker Showdown theme. “Conservative House Speaker Or Your Seat.”

If you are ready to take a stand call your State Representative today  Here is a list of them. Tell them to vote for the most Conservative Candidate in the Race for Speaker; David Simpson and then join us in Austin Jan. 7th and 8th.
