    but the funding source is questionable. Typical of the GOP-even when they stumble on something good they find a way to stink it up.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

    •  rainy day (5+ / 0-)

      This started out as 1billion from the rainy day fund for a Water Bank to fund water conservation projects (the "damn, it's never going to rain again" fund). Now David Dewhurst is asking for 2 billion. And then Perry asked for 3.2 billion.

      I'm of the opinion that if David Dewhurst says "there's no other option" you have probably had your options reduced to "screw yourself"...which makes me wonder which Perry/Dewhurst crony is standing in the spot where that money will flow? There is no way Goodhair uses that money for the right reasons. We gutted education and health programs while renting him a mansion with a 600k pricetag.

      If only Michael Phelps hadn't smoked that pot...imagine what he could have accomplished with motivation and good lung capacity.
