Punishing Austin

A good read about the abusive relationship between the governor of Texas and the large cities. Austin has long been they target for this sort of pettiness, but as Dallas and Houston and even places like Williamson and Hayes county turn Blue, the people living in these places are also on the receiving end of this nonsense. Of course, the vast majority of the wealth and economic activity is in these urban areas, especially now that oil and gas are winding down. A sort of economic apartheid.

Texas Republicans love to punish Austin. Now the pandemic is doing it for them.
