Report from the August 2014 meeting presentation:
- Raney has an “F” rating for the Conservative Empower Texans website. Key votes included “massively increased spending by expanding Medicaid under ObamaCare,” and “funded corporate welfare programs.”
- Raney was “one of 18 Republicans who voted with Democrats in stopping Gov. Perry’s 2013 initiative to move the Public Integrity Unit out from under convicted drunk driver Rosemary Lehmberg, Travis county’s Democrat district attorney.” If these Republicans had not joined w the Democrats, Perry would not have had to exercise his line-item veto.
- Tom opened discussion to the group on how we exert conservative influence on Mr. Raney going forward.
