Texas is going full public sector

For the purposes of this argument, Texas is Lilliput, and the 27 million residents of the state are Gulliver. The nearly 1.5 million state and local government employees in Texas are the Lilliputians. The Lone Star State has more state and local employees per capita than Illinois or CaliforniaApproximately 325,000 of these employees work for the state of Texasapproximately 1.2 million work for local governments (cities, counties, school districts, and other “political subdivisions” of the state).
Well  we know why Texas  growth is slowing to a crawl.
