Elitist Austin politicians and liberal activist groups are completely out of touch with the financial reality of average Texans.
Health care and prescription drug costs are skyrocketing, food prices are high, and wages are stagnant. These factors make it difficult, if not impossible, to save for a rainy day. Evidence suggests that many Texans, regardless of income, are in similar situations. A federal government shutdown of less than 30 days threw many workers into a financial tailspin.
