    Didn't the increase in Reps come from increases in population ? If so, one could also consider people moving into TX from the south of it. Illegal aliens from Mexico who are counted in the Census. Also, many of them are becoming American citizens via the anchor baby racket.

    The increase in population also includes companies moving to TX which I posted as well. It is all well and good to defend your state but it is also a sign of maturity to admit that your state has screwed up and has caused businesses to move out. Businesses are in business to make a profit and high taxes affect their ability to generate that profit to pay shareholders and employees. It is a concept that liberals don't seem to understand. Lower taxes in TX are attractive to businesses and the economy here is benefiting.

    Nobody here has to explain it. You are using the article to make your own particular ideological point. It is up to you to provide evidence which is sorely lacking in that piece you think says something but actually does not say what you it badly want it to say.

    Absolutely amazing, nothing is going to change your mind and that is fine. One of these days you too will even grow up and realize how liberalism has made a fool out of you. I don't care whether you believe it or not as one great thing about this country is that you have the freedom to remain with your head buried in the sand and remain a believer in the liberal ideology. Once you finally realize how wrong you have been hopefully it won't be too late. It wasn't for me when I finally grew out of my own ignorance as the liberal rhetoric never achieved the promised results.

    What I am asking you is to explain to me and everyone here just how this entire NET TAXPAYER thing is computed. HOW is it done. What is measured? How are all taxes accounted for? How are all services accounted for? How are the various differences in people and what services they use accounted for?

    I want to know the details of how this definition is arrived at.

    You see I wanted to find out for myself but I went to Wikipedia and put in NET TAXPAYER and there is no such thing there.

    YES YES YES=It was being discussed constantly on various political talk shows-left and right.

    What does any of that have to do with the quote you reproduced from me asking for supporting evidence behind claims and allegations of fact?
