Today’s Republican Party comprises two major constituencies: a donor class that embraces neoliberal dogma conveniently consistent with greed, and a resentful, suspicious, and insular white working class. The principal tie that binds these otherwise quite different constituencies is a conviction that government is the enemy. Both constituencies are well-represented in Texas, and in consequence Texas has had no particular respect for government programs to ensure safety and health. Sow the wind; reap the whirlwind.
