Not One

In his latest Southeast Texas Political Review article, Philip R. Klein's confusion becomes obvious between one paragraph and the next:

Do you want a shocker? How about this - NOT ONE CITY, COUNTY, MUNICIPAL, STATE OR FEDERAL BUDGET CUT SPENDING LIKE YOU HAVE. ALL HAVE GROWN IN SPENDING OVER THE LAST YEAR AN AVERAGE OF GET THIS : 5.4%

Yes - Jefferson, Hardin, Orange, City of Orange, City of Port Arthur, City of Beaumont, State of Texas, Federal Government - each has grown in spending by over 5.4% for this next fiscal year.

In the first paragraph, Klein states that spending has grown by an average of 5.4 percent among the listed entities.

In his second paragraph, Philip states that each entity has grown spending by over 5.4 percent.

As I noted yesterday, the Beaumont Enterprise clearly refuted Klein's distortion of the facts:
The 1.8 percent increase from last year's $119 million adjusted budget is mostly related to the 5 percent salary increase for union employees and 2 percent salary increase for non-union employees, according to Patrick Swain, county auditor.
More to come!

The problem is that even if Phillip was right about growing government no one would listen because he is such an IDIOT. Hey Phil-shut up. You have no credibility. You are an embarrassing moron who continues to damage the Republican party everytime you open your mouth.
