“These are all such easy votes. I don’t know why everybody’s squirming about it.”
â€“Republican Rep. Mike Krusee, whose Round Rock district is one of the few where voters are thought to support all the tax bills passed this week, making Mr. Krusee one of the few reps seen smiling after each vote.
He’s smiling, while others are squirming.Â Do voters in his district support all the tax bills passed last week?Â He better hope so.Â I can picture him on the house floor leaning back in his chair, with his feet kicked up on his desk saying this. While he votes to make sure that none of the “new taxes” go for a teacher pay raise, for better schools, etc.. Raising taxes on small businesses all over the state is an easy vote for him. This is a man who thinks he has absolutely no chance of losing. Yea, there’s an easy vote, and it’s coming up in November, and it’s for Karen Felthauser.
