David Dewhurst on Tax Reform
The moderator noted that the state budget has increased substantially during Dewhurst's tenure. Dewhurst came right back with: "I cut state spending," he said, adding that he made clear a state income tax would pass "over my dead, cold body." (Not having a state income tax has no bearing on whether the state budget increased under his watch).
Dewhurst: I think everyone on stage can give a good speech and say roughly the same thing. [Can he] say he's actually done it.
