The Republican agenda, it seems, is to block Dems from progress
On May 15, The American-Statesman published a letter to the editor in which the writer blamed the Democrats for not doing what they have promised and what the majority of Americans want. He asked, "When will they ever learn?"
It was curious to me that he neglected to state the obvious. The Republicans stop nearly everything the Democrats propose even though they are in the minority.
It seems that the Republicans have no other agenda but to stop the Democrats, and the country, from progressing. This includes tax fairness, voting rights, gun background checks and many other important areas. They are the party of no!
The answer, however, is in us. We need to use our strong majority to elect a strong majority of Democrats. That would be progress.

Flat tires and spoiled produce: Abbott's costly campaign stunt
Has Gov. Abbott resorted to blackmail in his bid for reelection?
He clogged up the border bridges by taking commercial traffic hostage with a redundant inspection at untold cost to our businesses, truckers, supply chains and our reputation.
The result? No drugs and no people were found being smuggled. Just flat tires and a bunch of rotten produce.
An expensive campaign stunt and we Texans are paying the bill.

With no accountability, Abbott plays military games to win reelection
Gov. Abbott is choking us with a chain of harmful decisions meant to help him get re-elected. And he's misusing our hard-earned tax money to do it.
While our public schools and rural hospitals are slowly dying, he is using billions of dollars of our tax money to fund military maneuvers with no accountability or even noteworthy results.
We want public schoolteachers and healthcare, not military games for Greg Abbott's re-election campaign. What kind of governor uses our own monty to hurt us?
