Oh my. It’s great to be back in Texas. No place I’ve been across the globe is better than the Lone Star State. https://t.co/qwU5dh46ip
Austin has shown that raising taxes doesn’t solve homelessness. They increased property taxes to raise more than $20,000 per homeless person in Austin. The problem has only gotten worse since then. Austin needs things money can’t buy: action, resolve & common sense. twitter.com/bugzbony/statu…

The city’s policies are dangerous for both the homeless and non-homeless. Too many people are being harmed because of them. twitter.com/mollyandamic/s…
“They have removed, seemingly, any legal consequences to the actions where the homeless lie, sleep, where they defecate,” @GregAbbott_TX said 1/ atxne.ws/3aFIiLW
 
@PolitiFactTexas found, however, that even when regulations were at their most lax, they included provisions preventing camping in certain areas and legal consequences for violating the policy 2/2 atxne.ws/3aFIiLW
To the Californians moving to Texas: Remember those high taxes, burdensome regulations, & socialistic agenda advanced in CA? We don't believe in that. We believe in less government & more individual freedom. If you agree with that you'll fit right in. dallasnews.com/business/real-…

Another sign how strong the Texas economy is: Dallas-Fort Worth tops the country in office job growth. Great line from the story: “A comment we often hear from companies when visiting from out of state is, ‘Wow, I had no idea Dallas was this cool!’” dallasnews.com/business/real-…

You are exactly right. I’m not attacking homelessness. I’m criticizing the lawlessness promoted by the City of Austin. The City’s top job is public safety and they are failing. Yesterday’s tragic murder is the most recent example. twitter.com/bababla3087123…

Exactly. This murder must be condemned by Austin leaders. An innocent person lost their life this morning at a restaurant & others injured The City of Austin must ensure its homeless policy doesn’t endanger the lives of innocent people—AND the lives of the homeless. twitter.com/koskionfox7/st…
