Perry Tax Scheme Alienates GOP Faithful

Houston Chronicle reporter R.G. Ratcliffe says "Perry's political clout facing convention test - The governor's tax package causes grumbles among the GOP faithful".

Here's an excerpt:

The Texas Republican convention next weekend will be a major test of whether Gov. Rick Perry has alienated the GOP base with a property tax cut package that was paid for with a major business tax increase....

Several Houston delegates to the state GOP convention are pushing for a party platform plank denouncing the new tax. At the very least, they say they hope to send Perry a message of Republican disgruntlement.

This anger might ... create a disillusionment that causes some voters to stay home.

That could spell disaster for a governor seeking re-election in a race that likely will be decided by less than a majority of the voters.

"They'll either skip the governor's race, or they'll end up voting for the little grandma (independent candidate Carole Keeton Strayhorn) to let the governor know that, even if you win, we do not approve of what you are doing," said Langston Gillum, a Houston delegate on the platform committee.

...

Houston grass-roots activist Steven Hotze and businessman Norman Adams pushed a resolution through the Harris County Republican Executive Committee denouncing the new business tax, and they are asking the state convention to adopt it as part of the party platform.

"He (Perry) has jeopardized his position, and his status has fallen with grass-roots conservatives across the state, particularly here in Houston," said Hotze.

...

Parro acknowledged, however, that there is a national "unrest" among the Republican grass roots that could translate into poor voter turnout in November.

"The sense that Republicans are going to suffer in November is quite strong all across the nation," Parro said, citing immigration issues as the biggest concern for Republican voters.

Kirk Overbey of Austin, chairman of the platform committee, said he believes there is "angst" among Republicans across Texas about the tax package.

Past opposition

"There is a lot of concern about the whole tax package put together by a Republican Legislature and signed by a Republican governor," Overbey said.

Perry has alienated all Texans with his tax increase, corporate giveaways of our tax dollars, foreign toll road plan, and opposition to I&R. Keep up the Fight for Grandma.
