    Spin. Like it or loathe it. Personally, I prefer facts over partisan whining. But please do carry on.

    Do tell how it's spin. That wasn't even enough time to watch the entire video between my post and your post.

    Would you like a list of all the state governments that collect taxes and fees and then does not spend it they are supposed to, or do you have some sort of personal grudge against against Texas? I suspect it is the latter, but if it is the former I suggest you start anywhere you want and you will see that every single state does it.

    I don't have any grudge against Texas, just Texas governors who become president, lead us into war, recession, and increase the deficit despite their claim of being fiscally conservative.
