Greatest recession since the Great Depression of our grandparents time. Worst real estate market of the modern age. Unemployment at all time high for our generation. Gas prices soar. Spending stops. Foreclosure. Deficit. Debt. Bankruptcy.
You may have heard that the state of Texas has a shortfall in the State budget. The deficit is estimated at $18 Billion. If you hadn’t heard, here is a good summary of the budget deficit and how Texans found out about it.

And it will be the conservative policies that save us in the end.
While I disagree with our president on a lot of things, his championing of transparency is something I got behind. I think that we can all agree, across the board that we need more integrity in politics. We need to get behind anything that forces our politicians to be more honest. So when Obama discussed putting bills online and letting the American people in on the process, I was excited and hoped Republicans would get on board in a bipartisan effort to make our government better.
