Another Reason to Vote for a New Texas Governor in 2010

Gov. Rick Perry's claims of tax relief via constitutional amendments yields increases instead

2005’s Proposed Amendment 12:  Revisited After 4 Years

Apparently, once a liar, always a liar!

Several years ago Texas Gov. Rick Perry put on his ten-gallon Stetson, saddled-up his taxpayer financed plane and galloped all over the state lobbying to eliminate what he and his health care industry special interests called “frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits.”

Texans were promised that if they voted for this proposal, they soon would see a reduction in the costs of health care and medical related services.

Well, just as in the more recent November 2007 proposed amendment election where only 8 percent of all registered voters approved ALL 16 amendments, back in 2005 Perry and his good ol’ boys got what they wanted. Proposition 12 was approved and Texans were duped.


Looking at it in retrospect, you don’t have to be an Einstein or a brain surgeon to see that in 2005 Perry was touting another pack of lies, just as he did in 2007 re: Proposed Amendment 15, a.k.a., “the cure for cancer.”

In addition, Perry lobbied frantically to deregulate higher education tuition, promising Texans that doing so would decrease the cost of a college education while making institutions more competitive. That proposition also was approved.  After 4 successive tuition increases since the proposal was accepted, tuition costs are the highest ever in the state.

Currently in 2009 Texans should be able to see what a load of buffalo chips their governor REALLY is regarding these issues.  In fact, Perry did the same with lobbying for the deregulation of the electric industry, promising more competitive and lower costs to consumers --- apparently just another "pie in the sky" promise that hurt Texans again financially, considering consumers consistently pay the highest costs for their electricity than ever before.

By the way, I just got another letter from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Texas telling me that they have to increase my family’s premium again and another notice from the University of Texas stating it regrets having to increase my children’s tuition!

Whatever happened to those alchemists who promised they would turn lead into gold?  They sound like Perry and his special interest campaign contributors.
