Texas Progressive Alliance June 18, 2012

June 18, 2012

The Texas Progressive Alliance hopes everyone had a happy Father’s Day as it brings you this week’s roundup.

Off the Kuff did an interview with State Sen. Wendy Davis, the Republicans’ top target in November.

WCNews at Eye on Williamson says the Texas GOP is getting set to raise taxes on working and middle classes Texans again, Here comes the next wave in the assault on health care & public education in Texas.

Refinish69 at Doing My Part For The Left can only say WTF??? Has the entire Country lost its mind?

Neil attended a march of Houston janitors looking for nothing more than a more fair wage for the work they do. This post has two videos of the arrest of one of these peaceful marchers by aggressive Houston police officers on horseback.

At TexasKaos, lightseeker points out that, all of a sudden somebody at the national level gets it, the Dems have NO Brand! Check it out It’s The Branding Stupid!
