Another example of Legislators that are of concern. NOTE she has been a Legislator for over 20 years in our Texas House. But the voters never had a say. Elected legislators come and go. But those who manage to get hired stay. She on our payroll for over $80,000 a year and is paid to be a Legislator for 365 days a year or 730 days bi-annually. The Elected Legislator comes for 140 days every other year. WHO do you think has more say in what our Laws are and in how our money is spent? Some, maybe many, of these career bureaucrats are dedicated public servants. But many develop an attitude that government exists to serve bureaucrats as if they were royalty and we, the taxpayers, are their servants.
