29. The Tax Argument is NOT a Total Red Herring!
We have no state income tax in Texas. So we've got sales tax--state & local. Which everybody pays.

Even renters pay property tax--indirectly. We used to support our schools that way. Idiot Governor shoved through a property tax reduction but no new source of funding education has appeared. I don't have kids but don't mind any part of my tax money going to schools. And I don't care about the legal status of the kids--or their parents.

Republican policies--on the state & national level--have done more to cripple health care than "illegals."
