Speaker Tom Craddick Wants Us to Believe He and Legislators 'Walk on Water'

6 May 2008 at 9:32:07 AM

Who does Craddick think he's fooling?
According to a 5/05/08 statement made by Craddick,
"Five years ago we faced a $10 billion dollar deficit. Rather than raise taxes to bridge the gap, we found ways to be more efficient and operate government with the revenue available. When the legislature convenes in January 2009, some people estimate that we may enjoy a $15 billion surplus even after passing the largest property tax cut in Texas history.”

--Tom Craddick, House Speaker

In reality, what Tom Craddick REALLY is saying in his "sleight of tongue" comment is that in the past five years the state has diverted more of its constitutional responsibility for financing public education onto local governments who then continue to overburden homeowners via property taxes.


Furthermore, Gov. Rick "39-percent" Perry and lawmakers diverted more state penalties, fees and miscellaneous tax revenue over to local government, so it further burdened taxpayers in counties throughout Texas.
In addition, 2 years ago there were $14 BILLION overpaid in sales taxes that Gov. Perry and lawmakers simply held onto instead of using that money to provide some relief to hardworking Texans.
So, Tom Craddick, a.k.a., Tom DeLay's former "delivery boy" continues to play "3-card Monty" with our taxpayer dollars, trying to make it appear that he and his "merry band of legislators" are "walking on water" for the Texas community.
Texans, aren't you sick of the ongoing Perry and Craddick lies and cover-ups of what they are REALLY doing?
Voters and taxpayers need to show our "leaders" that "what goes around, comes around", but so far Perry and Craddick have been able to keep their "dancing shoes on" and they dance in and out of our state laws.
One day they will pay for their unrecognized sins against the community. 
For now, Texans can make them pay sooner if they unite and file complaints to their elected officials.  Let your House Reps. know you don't want Craddick for Speaker of the House and that he needs to be held accountable for his questionable actions.
Tell your Senators and House Reps. to hold Perry accountable as well.
