AUSTIN, TX – Texas House Democrats have taken a page from the national Democrat playbook and offered a fantasy public education budget that promises the world and offers no details on how it would be paid for. Chairman James Dickey made the following statement:

“Just like the socialist Green New Deal embraced by their national counterparts, Texas House Democrats unveiled a public education funding proposal that offers the moon with no explanation for how it could be accomplished. In typical leftist fashion the Democrats are offering Texans a fantasy list of goodies that would absolutely blow up the state budget and wreak havoc on the economy. Texans are already suffering from crushing property taxes and this proposal from House Democrats would necessarily raise taxes on our state’s residents. It’s the height of irresponsibility, but unfortunately par for the course, for Democrats to suggest we can increase spending so tremendously and not put forth a sustainable plan on how to pay for it.”
