Texas has Stimulus Withdrawal: Texas Governor and TAB President Display Mega-Ignorance

23 October 2009 at 2:30:53 PM

What is in that Texas drinking water?

It's not the first time that Bill Hammond, the President of the Texas Association of Business, has shared some pretty ignorant comments, e.g., when several years ago Hammond stated that public education should increase class sizes to cut back on teacher personnel costs.
Sorry, that's just dumb.

The latest oddball tidbit from Bill Hammond likens the unemployment money coming from Washington to an overture from a drug dealer.
“He gives you your first bit of cocaine for free, and then you are addicted and have to pay for it the rest of your life,” Hammond told a legislative panel this week, adding that employers would have to pick up the tab for extended benefits after the federal well runs dry.

Is Hammond speaking from personal drug buying experience?

First of all, the federal money could be used for many different opportunities to provide some one-time relief to many hard-working and hardly-working Texans. There is nothing carved-in stone that requires the state to initiate new ongoing services and thereby incur a new continuing "debt".

We have to hope that state officials have enough intelligence to use some common-sense when it comes to acquiring and using the federal stimulus funds to help and not hinder our state economy.
Perry continues to make dumb remarks as when he refuses to take federal money and then has a mental breakdown stating that maybe Texas should secede from the United States.  He made a splash in newspapers across the nation with that idiotic remark.

Although, upon hearing such absurd comments from "leaders" like Hammond and Gov. Rick Perry who appear almost afraid of accepting the stimulus money, we could be mistaken re: the intelligence and ethics of our elected officials.  They are too busy playing political games instead of working to improve the Texas community.
