Texas should just succeed
How about we lead for now.
If Texas Representatives and Texas Senators were NOT involved in any debate or any input on negotiations then it's pretty clear to me what's going on. The citizens of Texas are being taxed without representation. Merely voting up or down on a bill in which you had no input or any time to consider is NOT representation.
I would like to see a push for Attorney General Greg Abbott to file suit against the federal government. Harry Reid does not get to speak for the state of Texas. John Boehner does not speak for Texas yet he and a handful of others have decided every aspect of this far reaching legislation.
It's time for the state of Texas to demand our interests are fully represented. Abbott needs to sue the federal government on behalf of all the taxpaying citizens of Texas.
“Texas should just succeed”
It is already succeeding.
What I want is for it to also secede.
