I’m disappointed to see that Texas has borrowed a billion.

Ditto. Another $1 billion spent and Texas will have to find a way to make up the nearly $13 billion budget shortfall during the next session of the Texas Legislature. Texas only has about $9 billion in it’s so-called ‘rainy day’ fund. Before these ‘geniuses’ decide to raise taxes and fees on those of us that work, try cutting all the unnecessary spending(parks, recreation, etc.). If that doesn’t work, they can then tell all state agencies to cut their staffing by 25%. Private industry does it all the time.

In short, make do with less. When you run out of money, you stop spending. Why can’t the government?
