Bipartisan Pigs at Trough

Texas state legislators are in their second special session this year to tackle the issues of school finance, teacher pay, and property tax relief. Unable to solve those issues, the legislators acted in a bipartisan spirit to raise their own pensions, which can start as early as age 50 and can exceed $100,000 per year.

(Heavy sigh) Politicians, whether Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, urban or rural, are the same everywhere, always looking out for the ones they care about the most--themselves!
