Debra Medina Talks Candidacy for Texas State Comptroller [Audio]

Debra Medina, Facebook

Tuesday on Lubbock’s First News, Debra Medina, candidate for Texas State Comptroller, spoke about her intentions to bring a focus to business and economic changes if elected.

Medina believes that while Texas talks a lot about free markets, the state doesn’t “execute” effectively. She said, “We have got to have more people in the executive branch who understand that there’s a difference between pro-free market and pro-business.”

She observed that policy has not been primarily free market driven, so there is a need to reform the tax systems to keep up with the diverse economy, replacing the current “peace meal structure.” Medina believes the current system allows for wealth redistribution that is restricting the state’s potential for profit. She noted the state’s currently booming economy, stating the need to pay as we go in order to decrease the existing debt with available resources.
