So how effective were the members of the Iscariot Caucus?

Turns out, not so much. The Observer has a great piece up on the their questionable claims of success and their outright lies. Long story short, they fucked over the rest of us and their constituents for nothing.

In all, the Craddick Ds estimate they passed roughly 80 percent of their
proposals. Other Democrats such as Coleman contest that math. An
increase in Medicaid rates for providers and hospitals—which the
Craddick Ds listed among their successes—came about when a decades-old
lawsuit was settled. On higher education, numerous Democrats and rural
Republicans worked to kill a bill that limited the Top 10 Percent
university admissions rule. And it was a bipartisan coalition that
increased funding for state parks, not just Craddick Ds.
Then there are the items that the Craddick Ds utterly failed to deliver.
They had hoped to repeal the deregulation of university tuition that has
led to such high prices at Texas colleges. That will never happen as
long as Craddick, who maintains close ties to the University of Texas
System Board of Regents, remains speaker.
For Democrats who gave their support to the speaker, a day of reckoning
has yet to come. Three of the Craddick Ds—Kevin Bailey of Houston,
Robert Puente of San Antonio, and Peña—already have likely primary

Great report, but master of the obvious when it comes to the end result. He also left out quite a few people. There are people IN LINE to take a swipe at Dukes, that douche Dutton and little Patty Rose. Giddings also has some issues and even Turner may be facing an opponent. The message is clear... DEMOCRATS ALL OVER THE STATE ARE SICK OF YOUR SELF-SERVING SHIT.

Yeah, things have changed. We started paying attention and realized many of you don't have a clue what the hell you're doing.
