Abbott’s Opposition to American Merger Threatens Jobs, Illustrates Hypocrisy
Attorney General Greg Abbott’s decision to join the Obama Administration in opposing the American Airlines-US Airways merger is – on the surface – an unexpected twist coming from an AG whose favorite one-liner is: “I go into the office, I sue the federal government, and then I go home.”
Abbott feigns concern about privacy, yet is responsible for a giant data breach that exposed millions to potential identity theft.
In a transparent pander to Republican ideologues and Tea Party extremists, Greg Abbott is attempting to raise the specter that Texans’ personal information could be vulnerable if they enroll in a healthcare plan as part of the public health exchange required under the Affordable Care Act.
Abbott and Perry’s Shared Interests and Donors Leave Little Difference
When Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott announced his run for Governor, two words he didn’t use were Rick and Perry. Abbott not only tried to sidestep a record of partisanship and divisiveness, he also sought to distance himself from Rick Perry.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but this one came at a much higher price for Texas taxpayers. When the Lone Star Project posted the above image last week—one of Abbott's front groups falsely claimed it had been photoshopped. That is simply not true. Instead, it came from Greg Abbott's high-dollar vanity video project.
