Congratulations to Rep. Miller for his recent accolade from Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, a Republican advocacy group whose interests lie with the Republican members of the state legislature. In the interests of fair and balanced reporting, it should be noted that TFR sets its own guidelines and is not objective in its assessments; of the 81 Republican representatives, only 10 received a score of under 60 percent; by contrast, of the 79 Democrats, only one received a score of more than 60 percent, with the majority scoring in the 20 percent to 38.46 pervent range. The report can be see at http://www.empowertexans.com.

Politics is like driving…if you want to go backwards, choose R. If you want to move forward, choose D.
