These people pass or fail laws! but yet they don't even follow their own rules! WTF?
I have just viewed an investigative report on some of the horribly dishonest practices that our legislators are participating in. I speak of the practice of legislators casting multiple votes by using the voting systems of absent legislators or even legislators that are simply slow on the draw. This is a travesty of democracy and I am absolutely sickened to have watched this happen. You people are the people that we send to the capitol in good faith to work on our behalf to ensure the smooth operation of our state. But then to find out that so many representatives lie and cheat to pass legislation they favor is simply disgusting. I am physically ill having watched this take place. Any faith I had ever had in the government is gone. There are rules against this in the Rules and Precedents of the Texas House, and it is YOUR responsibility to punish those who violate these rules. This is horribly disgusting and you should all be ashamed of yourself for allowing this sort of tripe to continue.
They dont care about you, at all, at all, at all!

I don't live in Texas but it really makes me wonder what other states do crap like this as well?
