Short of our President I’m not sure I have seen worse leadership, with worse repercussions, than our current Texas Governor. This is what happens when you have a weak, “business friendly” government. Business gets it way, at the expense of, well, just about everyone and everything. Usually the costs in both money and lives are harder to see (I’m thinking of you, Texas oil industry) but this time the price of our Business Friendly government is on display for all to see. BTW, this article is very sympathetic, at times, to the difficult plight of Gov Abbott. I’m have no such sympathy. From the Texas Tribune.
