With the 85th Session of the Texas Legislature behind us, citizens should be demanding accountability from their elected officials now . The Texas Legislature is not scheduled to meet again until January of 2019. Thus, politicians’ performance should be under the scrutiny of concerned citizens.
Holding all statewide public offices, a majority in the Texas Senate, and a near super majority in the Texas House of Representatives, Republicans should have delivered all the conservative policy planks promised to voters. However, ask any conservative activist at the Capitol, from Texas Right to Life, Concerned Women for America, Texas Eagle Forum, Southern Baptist Convention of Texas, or Texas Values about the most recent legislative session. The resounding answer is, “Conservatives shouldn’t have to be working this hard.”
Indeed, after electing all Republicans, so much work from outside-the-Dome activists and organizations should not be needed. We have block-walked, contributed to campaigns, and even written solid legislation; all the Republican members needed to do was pass conservative reforms.
The most prolific and staunchest supporters of saving innocent human Lives in the Capitol are outspoken conservative members; thus, reluctance of Republicans to pass “conservative” legislation necessarily affects Pro-Life legislation.
Whatever issue is most important to you and your family, ask conservative activists whom you trust for the real story.
