Texas Capitol Building

From today’s Austin American Statesman, “Report: Homeless kids fare worst in Texas

Texas is the worst place in the nation for homeless children, and the faltering economy will push even more families with little ones into the streets, according to a new report. A study released Tuesday by the National Center on Family Homelessness placed Texas 50th—last of all states—in how homeless children fare….the child poverty level in Texas is 23 percent.

Think about that number, 23 PERCENT, that’s almost 1 in 4!

In comparison, last night the Texas Senate spent last night wringing it’s hands over what to do about the non-crisis of voter fraud. As the Dallas Morning Stated

“Chalk up the Texas Senate’s nearly 24-hour wrangle over voter IDs as crass politics trumping thoughtful public policy.

Proponents of the so-called voter ID bill wanted to make a point to the political base back home: We won’t let liars and cheats steal elections in Texas.”

They really don’t give a damn about where these kids sleep, they would rather spend our money and their valuable time on matters that really do not matter, chasing what does not exist in the name of political expediency…

Here is a contact list for these idiots opportunists/politicians/public servants, give them a call/email/piece of your mind on priorities.
