Recently governors rejecting UI stimulus funds have come under fire for not doing “right” by their respective states. Of course, those condemning these actions have been clamoring for the expansion of UI benefits for years and are doing their best to push this grow government agenda before Americans get wise to their scheme. That’s where true conservatives like Mark Sanford come in.

Governor Mark Sanford (R- S. Carolina) is not only rejecting the stimulus funds but actively campaigning against the idea that a stimulus rooted in debt is a burden not a benefit.

Sanford is launching a campaign to educate citizens about his decision through print and television ads. In Texas we have a chance to save ourselves from the misguided attempts of the federal government to “stimulate” our economy by rejecting burdensome changes to our UI code.

Sign our petition to stop Texas from pulling down these funds and become a part of the effort to ensure Texas will continue to be a beacon of economic success in years to come.
