Last week, I took Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst to task for his ridiculous assertions that he, Rick Perry, and Joe Strauss didn't need the stimulus dollars to balance the budget. (David Dewhurst Spinning Lies that Texas Didn't Need Stimulus Dollars to Balance the Budget)
Today, State Representative Jim Dunnam, who is Chair of the House Select Committee on Federal Economic Stabilization Funding, penned a Statesman in the op-ed knocking Dewhurst and Perry for their blatant hypocrisy. From his op-ed, titled, “Texas a fiscal wonderland? Now that's pure fantasy“
The problem with much of the current Republican Party leadership is not that they disagree with Democrats. The real problem is that they disagree with reality.
By shamelessly pretending that in is out and up is down, they have spun themselves into Wonderland.
Whether you like the stimulus or not, this misinformation is getting out of hand.
You should really read the entire op-ed — Chairman Dunnam does a great job detailing all of Perry's hypocrisy.
Go. Read it now. This post is over. Fine — here's the link one more time.
