Texas Governor Greg Abbott just got a very classy revenge move against the Democrat lawmakers, that walked out of their jobs.

The Teca Democrats tried to publicly oppress him, and prevent the Republicans from passing the electoral reforms. They did so by walking out of the floor from the chamber in Texas just last month.
After the move, Abbott has sworn to defund the prudent lawmakers for “abandoning their responsibilities.”
According to the Daily Wire report,
“Abbott vetoed funding for the state legislature on Friday, carrying out the threat he made last month after Democrats staged a walk-out to block legislation.
“Texans don’t run from a legislative fight, and they don’t walk away from unfinished business,” Abbott said in a statement Friday. “Funding should not be provided for those who quit their job early, leaving their state with unfinished business and exposing taxpayers to higher costs for an additional legislative session. I, therefore, object to and disapprove of these appropriations.”
Abbott vetoed Article 10 of the state budget approved by the legislature Friday. Article 10 not only funds lawmakers’ salaries, but also the salaries of staff and maintenance workers, and it funds legislative agencies such as the Legislative Reference Library.
Abbott’s veto of Article 10 is unprecedented, according to the Legislative Reference Library. Similarly, the Democrats’ walk-out in May to stop legislation that was otherwise primed to pass is a move that has rarely been done in Texas politics.”
