Don’t blame Dems
Governor Abbott and the Republican-controlled Texas legislature had five months in the regular session to pass a bill giving Texas’ retired teachers a “13th” check or a permanent Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA), five months during which the Republicans refused to even move the bill from committee. But now that the Democrats have been absent from the special session for three days the Republicans want to blame not passing the retired teacher bill on the Democrats! Give me a break! Such hypocrisy is an affront to every Texas voter, not just the retired teachers the Republicans are targeting with their empty rhetoric.
