“I knew it wasnt dead…”
Republicans generally understand that if Texas ever turned blue, the GOP would have an extremely difficult time winning a national presidential election.
While the Lone Star State is still happily conservative, Democrats and progressives are hoping that the state’s booming Hispanic/Latino population coupled with the diminishing young white population will help make the state a toss up in the future.
It’s a vast oversimplification, but it works. The sequestration cuts scheduled to take effect next week were split down the middle between defense and non-defense spending to motivate both Democrats and Republicans to find alternative spending cuts. The GOP certainly wouldn’t allow defense programs to be cut, would it? Social programs, sure. Just perform a quick Google search of “sequestration cuts” and you’ll find headlines like “11 Drastic Sequester Cuts Threatening Average Americans” and “‘Meat Cleaver’ Sequestration Cuts to Hit Teachers, FBI Agents.”
