Since it's quite possible he will be our future President....

https://www.npr.org/2022/04/20/1093729789/texas-border-bridge-order-cost-billions

Quote :
"Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's rule imposing safety inspections at the border did "nothing to stop the flow of illegal immigration or illegal drugs," the state's agriculture commissioner told NPR.
But it did cost the U.S. billions of dollars in trade losses...

...

including $1 billion per week at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge alone, according to the latest tallies of the slowdown's economic fallout.."

The theatrics are not surprising anymore. He has to compete for attention with the Florida Governor.

why? I mean, Trump became our president (and may do it again). I imagine Trump's base would easily vote for him, as well as other Never-Trump repubs .

Maybe this should have been a "Texas Credibility Watch"

https://www.npr.org/2022/04/29/1095137650/texas-stumbles-in-its-effort-to-punish-green-financial-firms

Quote :
"For years, fossil fuel producing states have watched investors shy away from companies causing the climate crisis. Last year, one state decided to push back.

Texas passed a law treating financial companies shunning fossil fuels the same way it treated companies that did business with Iran, or Sudan: boycott them.

"This bill sent a strong message to both Washington and Wall Street that if you boycott Texas energy, then Texas will boycott you," Texas Representative Phil King said from the floor of the Texas legislature during deliberations on the bill, SB 13, last year.
...
..."

"and the state of Texas may maybe be out of sync with some of those global trends"

Interesting phrasing.
