the conservative texas budget
States with low taxes have better economic growth and more job creation.
WE CAN'T AFFORD THE CONSEQUENCES OF MORE SPENDING.
The Conservative Texas Budget sets clear and achievable spending limits on state funds and all funds.
Why is spending bad? Because it always has to be covered by tax increases -- tax increases that have so many unintended consequences. Property taxes are crowding people out of their homes; sales taxes are crowding entrepreneurs out of their dreams of owning their own businesses.
We often hear the argument that because our taxes are already so low, that we can "afford" more spending. The simple truth is that there are a lot more costs to taxes than the dollar amount itself: concentrating capital into the hands of government bureaucrats means it can't flow where it's needed -- to buy homes, to run businesses, to achieve dreams.
