The Heat Is Now On Texas State Leaders


In the aftermath of last week's epic winter blast that left millions of Texans went without power, we have seen plenty of reaction from our local leaders, but where was the leadership? Who wins when they play the blame game? And perhaps the biggest question of them all? Do our state leaders know what they are doing? Ross Ramsey of The Texas Tribune told KTRH the one thing that cannot be denied? " This is a situation where everybody looks to the government. Those are the people that are supposed to be watching the electricity and they had an epic failure, and they ought to be held accountable for it. If they had done a really great job we would all be throwing them a parade." But we are not. The only parade this week will be in Austin, where State lawmakers will be called upon to make the necessary changes, to make sure this never happens again. Ramsey says, "It's a weird session because of the pandemic, but this is clearly on their list. People are ticked off, and we'll see how they do." And obviously they have to do better. As Ramsey points out, "if the elections were held today a lot of them would be in trouble."
