Gov. Abbott, did you misplace your dictionary? I don’t think you know what the word “callous” means, so let me help you. According to Merriam Webster it means “feeling or showing no sympathy for others: hard-hearted, a callous indifference to suffering.”
When you used this word to describe President Biden and his administration’s policies, you were completely out of line. “Callous indifference” more aptly describes you and your Texas Republican party.
Hard-hearted Republican officials ignored warnings about the unstable infrastructure of the Texas electric grid, failed to rush help to those who were suffering, and then blamed consumers who were stuck with exorbitant electric bills.
Unsympathetic Republican policies reinforce cycles of poverty, restrict access to healthcare, and weaken our public schools.
