GOP...CYA

This from the TDP site, TEXTBOOKS AND MONEY FOR TEACHERS AND GET OUT OF DODGE??:
Unconfirmed but generally reliable sources


The word percolating around the nearly empty halls of the Capitol this afternoon is that GOvernor Perry is now suggesting damage control to Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and Speaker Tom Craddick. It boils down to acknowledging that there is no steam left to pass a major education or tax overhaul.

According to our sources, a new bill would be rolled out that would simply fund school books and some kind of teacher pay raise -- Maybe as little as simply funding health insurance.

According to just about every poll out there, the only two things upon which the voters insist are more money for teachers and paying for textbooks. Passage of those two elements would save some faCe and give all of the plaYers some cover for the next campAign.

As this is being written, Dewhurst is on a conference call with Senators.

Stay tuned. We may have to eat some crow. We will see
The Quorum Report also says, SENATE TO TAKE UP SB2 TOMORROW. After all that went down in the house on Tuesday are the Democrats in the Senate gonna let this get out of the Senate? I sure hope not. End this sucker tomorrow!
