...but sure as hell likes to live like one.
That or he has really take to heart...un político pobre es un pobre politico.
His defense of spending habits is, well, caca.
"My district is too big!!!"
His next door neighbor, State Senator Carlos Uresti, has a bigger district, but ranks much lower than him in spending.
"My district is too far from Austin!"
Another colleague of Jose's, State Senator Kel Seliger, ranks even lower still in spending, and lives in Amarillo, and his district is even larger than Uresti's.
Jose has lived off the government teat for his entire life.
He has never worked a day in his life in the private sector.
Spending your money is all he has known and all that he will ever do.
