As State Sen. Wendy Davis enters the 2014 gubernatorial race, the president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility – Michael Quinn Sullivan – offered the following statement.
On issue after issue, Wendy Davis has styled herself as a politician eager to please a narrow band of entrenched, liberal special interests. Her policy positions would put the state on a spending spree the likes of which we have never seen. Sen. Davis has refused to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, thereby putting the best economic interests of Texans behind bloated bureaucracies eager for more power and money.
As an avid proponent of ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion, Wendy Davis has established herself as someone willing to turn the Lone Star State into Texafornia.
Wendy Davis wants to turn Texas blue by way of a sea of red-ink and a flood of high taxes.
Finally, Davis’ professional interests have clearly been designed over the years to profit from the positions of public trust she has held. Whether illegal, unethical or just wrong, Texans are not well-served by an officeholder who stretches past breaking the relationship between their public life and private income.
