I know that Thomas Jefferson (or Alexis de Toqueville) said, “people get the government they deserve” but I really wonder if anybody deserves Greg Abbott. Texas is in a state of massive dysfunction right now with rolling blackouts, some people are freezing to death and where is their governor? Why, he’s on Sean Hannity’s show talking about what a bum rap green energy is.
Fox News and the Republican Party have created an alternative reality where the dysfunction people are currently enduring in Texas is somehow the fault of the Green New Deal. It's really nuts. And doesn't Abbott have better things to do right now than go on Hannity? https://t.co/AQlUe2ZWJ8

Evidently not. There he is, making points with the base. Soon the inability to cope with the winter storm will be the fault of AOC, Bernie, God alone knows what. The rest of us know it was deregulation, but they’re spinning the culprit out as Green New Deal.
Yes! TX grid is independent from rest of the states! They like it that way…you know “Independence” & free from federal regulations.
TX did it to themselves — stop blaming the Green New Deal. My sis is on 30th hr no electricity, another sis is melting snow for toilets!!! ?

I hope the people of Texas vote out some of these bums. Abbott, Dan Patrick his “old people would rather die so 401ks can live” Lt. Governor, and Ted Cruz would be one hell of a beginning.
