Statement: Joe Straus, as State Representative has pro-choice votes he refuses to explain, and is still on record as supporting Roe v. Wade.

2. He’s fiscally irresponsible and is ok with raising taxes.
Statement: Joe Straus is, by far, the most liberal of our 3 leaders in Texas. He has watered down fiscal principles. Straus with Barack Obama that we can’t “cut our way to prosperity”. Joe Straus has publicly ridiculed the Governor to standing up for the Texas Budget Compact which calls for constitutional spending limits which would reign in government.
Statement: Rick Perry and David Dewhurst have come out and stood firm on not allowing Obama to force more bureaucracy down on Texans. They have made it clear that Texas will not grow our medicaid program for the promise of some federal dollars. Where does Joe Straus stand on this? Nowhere as usual. When pressed he said they had to bring all the stakeholders together and decide. What is there to decide? Obamacare of harmful to our strong state and economy. Plain and simple.
Statement: The emails leaked by RedState.com have Straus’s staff clearly mocking conservatives across Texas. Republican leaders opinion’s are brushed aside and conservative members of the house are ridiculed. It’s clear they see conservatives as their enemy, and so they are ours.
