18. In Southern California, we have a serious water shortage.

You need water if you are going to have economic development.

In the San Francisco, Silicon Valley area, there is so much demand for housing that prices are shockingly high even now.

In my opinion, if Texas wants to take on our problems, they are quite welcome to do so.

Texas can deal with huge demand for education and no tax revenue to pay decent teachers. Texas can deal with patrolling streets and roads and drug cartels. Texas can deal with funding Medicaid and providing healthcare to a growing population of immigrants.

As long as we get to keep our Mediterranean climate and our beautiful beaches, we will be fine out here in Southern California.

What I look forward to most when California companies move to Texas is the bluing of that state as it welcomes more and more liberal Californians. I already know a couple of very liberal Californians who have moved to Texas.

Hey, Texas we look forward to hearing from your Democratic members of Congress in the future.
