AUSTIN, TX — Today, Imperial Republican Governor Greg Abbott called for a convention of states to pass nine amendments to the United States Constitution. Responding to the speech, Texas Democratic Party Deputy Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement:
“Unfortunately, the most pressing issue for Imperial Republican Governor Greg Abbott is how we can tear apart the Constitution and take America back to an equivalent of the Articles of Confederation.
“America added 292,000 new jobs in December. But under Abbott, Texas fell to sixth in job creation, remains the uninsured capitol of the nation, wages and incomes remain far too low for hardworking families, our neighborhood schools are still underfunded, and college education is slipping out of reach.
“Texas families deserve serious solutions, not Tea Party nonsense.”
