Long-Time Rick Perry Critic Lloyd Doggett Sounds Alarm
Who better to introduce America to the ‘kind of guy who goes jogging…packing a Ruger .380 with laser sights…loaded with hollow point bullets’–a gun he made famous as the ‘coyote special.’ No witnesses to his John Wayne moment, of course.
The Governor, whose not very best seller is called Fed Up, but who relied upon most every federal dollar he could find to balance the state budget.
The Governor who claims that Grandma’s Social Security is ‘a crumbling monument to the failure of the New Deal.’
The Governor whose idea of affordable housing is a little place in West Austin for which taxpayers are billed almost $10,000 per month.
The Governor who wants the same Supreme Court—that has approved unlimited, secret corporate campaign contributions for the first time ever—to stop its ‘activist ways’…but not before it declares our new health care law unconstitutional.
The Governor from the state with the highest percentage of folks without health insurance and the third highest teen pregnancy rate, that ranks 36th in the nation in high school graduation rates and has 3.8 million with no high school diploma…the nation’s leader in clean-water permit violations, hazardous waste spills, and toxic emissions.
