ABQ Journal cartoonist John Trever’s cartoon (below) hits the nail on the head (again). RGF president Paul Gessing recently visited Texas and traveled from north to south. He has seen firsthand the booming economy of the Lone Star State. The Texas economic model isn’t just about not regulating vehicles. They are also a Right to Work state, have a zero income tax, and spends MUCH less money than New Mexico. Also, a much higher percentage of the State’s citizens actually work.
