Texas Has the Right Financial Idea- Only Spend What You Have
Air Date: 04/20/2011
Summary: Phil King talks about the Texas state deficit. Does having a deficit mean they are in debt? What is it about the Texas model that is so special? State Representative Phil King answers these question. He talks about the Texas balanced budget amendment. Texas will not spend money it does not have. Being financially wise with our money works for our lives, families and businesses, why should government be any different? More than half of all US jobs created in 2008 were created in Texas. Texas continues to be a leader in job production. Look at the core functions of government; prioritize. Keep what is necessary and drop what is less necessary, even if it means dropping some good programs. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made, but it is what is needed to keep a government afloat, and even prosper.
