The Odd Republican Who Still Believes in Balanced Budgets

For a while now, Texas state Senator John Carona (R-Dallas) has been a puzzle to me. He's an old-style Republican who still believes in balancing a dollar of gov't expenditures with a dollar of revenue. He is open to raising taxes to pay for all the new roads Texans want. He calls other Texas Republicans fiscally irresponsible and hypocritical to boot. Where does he get the courage? For a short profile of this GOP heretic representing Richardson, Garland and north Dallas, be sure to read the cover story, "The Last Republican," by Wick Allison in the March edition of D Magazine.
