Claudia Geisendorff GOVT Professor Depperschmidt 4 December 2016 PR 10: Texas vs California: Which is Better? Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas, promised to avoid the huge deficit California faced at a whooping 25.4 billion, but, according to reuters.com, Texas is now facing an even bigger deficit at 27 billion dollars. Texas plans on cutting funding to welfare and education programs, which Texas has infamously been ranked low against the other states. California on the other hand, will probably raise taxes. California Governor Brown believes by cutting the spending by 12.5 billion and by taxing hikes more. Texas has long had no income tax and it doesn’t look like that will change with their very conservative attitude towards taxes. While the situation might have been building up for years like experts claim in the article, Texas also has over 9 billion funds for stormy days saved up from oil and natural gas production taxes. Texas has endured a similar budget cut in 2003, which it managed to weather without tax raising.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
