"To attain both reliability and affordability, our priorities for electricity market design are to ensure that our system is market-based, that risk is not shifted to consumers, and that additional revenue to the system results in actual dispatchable energy that is used and benefits consumers," said Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil & Gas Association.
One of the favorite pastimes of the political class is finger-pointing – when a candidate bombs the fingers come out, mostly because the alternative would be to take some responsibility themselves. In the case of last week's 2022 Election, there's plenty of blame to go around – as there was a whole lot of feces hitting a very powerful fan.
In the months and weeks prior to Tuesday's election, Joe Biden’s "approval rating" was still seen by most Democrats as too low to be helpful for them – and many avoided appearing with him. Short of Pennsylvania – where he was born – Mr. Biden did not visit states with highly competitive Senate races. Nonetheless, Biden says he does not foresee changing course, or any of his controversial priorities.
Americans for Tax Reform, Citizens Against Government Waste, and the Center for Freedom & Prosperity are all opposed to Congress creating new government mandates for Credit Card processing procedures. So why is Texas Cong. Lance Gooden teaming up with liberal Vermont Democrat Peter Welch to introduce the bill that will also reduce Security & Fraud Protections on your purchases?
Any GOP autopsy after Tuesday’s moribund Election 2022 performance must begin with a thorough analysis of the fundamental sickness – the predominant (and now evidenced) cultural rot in America.

If conservatives are truly serious about protecting the nation, we must first wrest American Culture from the Left.

TWC and its Workforce Solutions partners encourage employers to discover how Registered Apprenticeship programs provide earn-and-learn opportunities for businesses, education partners, labor organizations, and industry associations to meet the ongoing need for a skilled workforce.
The red "wave" that was expected, turned out to be a "splash" instead. We still might get the Senate – maybe after a run-off in Georgia – but this cycle's Senate map was always going to be a tough road. (21 Republican-held seats were up for election, compared to just 14 for Democrats.) But we are, obviously, not going to obliterate the Dems. Gee, sound familiar?
It’s difficult to say whether Joe Biden's & Democrat's “democracy is at risk” pitch during the final days of the election speaks more of desperation – or of stupidity. It pretends that electing Republicans will destroy the very "Democracy" that voters are engaging in. And either way, the use of such a preposterous phrase proves: It's Democrats who are at risk in this election!
President Biden's inflation crisis is costing hardworking Texans almost $9,000 a year. As a result of President Biden's and the Democrats’ Far Left Agenda our country's future continues to be in jeopardy, and it is time for a new direction.

If President Joe Biden had simply done nothing and spent his afternoons playing Scrabble with first lady Jill Biden in the Oval Office, our National Debt Burden would be much lower.

Over the past two years, Democrats in Congress failed to conduct meaningful oversight or deliver accountability for the Biden Administration’s actions that are threatening the safety and security of Americans.
