Old Austin line on power sharing with House Dems doesn’t hold up to basic scrutiny – Pratt on Texas 1/3/2023

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: The Austin insider power crowd fantasy of “Don’t be like DC” doesn’t hold up to basic scrutiny. Speaker Phelan and others need a better argument if they want to truly justify handing serious power to Democrats through chairmanships.

Also, along the same lines: Old liberal Democrat Kronberg of the Quorum Report tells incoming legislative freshmen: “Rule #1: First and foremost, your political party is not your friend. The people who wrote the platform are usually the extremists in your community with little connection to reality.” It’s the same old play that you lie to voters at home to get elected and then when in Austin (or DC) you work for yourself to move up with the insiders. It also shows that Kronberg is ignorant of who participates in Republican conventions.
