Not The Honorable Greg Abbott! Nooooooo.

I know you are going to be shocked.
Not The Honorable Greg Abbott! Nooooooo.

I know you are going to be shocked, shocked I tell you, to hear this:

A major donor to Gov. Greg Abbott received an immediate offer of help from the office of the governor after complaining that Democrats and their top contributor were on the verge of defeating a controversial bill insurance companies wanted, records obtained by The Texas Tribune indicate.

Texans for Lawsuit Reform, which should actually be named Screw The Little Guy, has given Abbott $720,000. That hunk of change buys them a billion dollars in unpaid claims.

Yeah, this is the same Greg Abbott who had no job and no health insurance when a tree limb fell on him in 1984. He collected $6 million dollars. He supports “reforms” that make it almost impossible to collect on injuries caused by negligence.

So, what we know now is that his legs are worth $6 million, but his soul is only worth $720,000.

Can you help us out?
