Happy Birthday America!

Friends,

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a happy and safe Independence Day.

Today, we reflect on our Nation's declared independence and exceptional freedoms that our founding fathers courageously fought for over 239 years ago. Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and of course, the strength of its people make this country the greatest country in the world.

Today, we honor those throughout history who have fought for, protected and paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

I am proud and honored to serve you, your family and all hardworking Texans as your Comptroller Candidate.

My family and I hope you have a great weekend.

Abbott Rulings an Issue in Enterprise Fund Controversy

As Texas Comptroller I promise this will NEVER happen again while I am in office. While Texas gave millions in taxpayers money to Republican donors, attorney general Greg Abbott - now a candidate for Governor - blocked the public from finding out about it. Politicians are NOT above the law. Austin is Broken, I am the man to fix it! I am qualified and ready to lead!

"...in a blistering state audit shows that at least five of the recipients that were named in Abbott’s 2004 rulings — and which got tens of millions of dollars from the fund — never actually submitted formal applications. And if no applications ever existed..."

More corruption in the Texas Comptroller's Office...

When are Texans going to have enough? As Comptroller I will NOT tolerate this level of corruption. More mismanagement inside the Comptroller's office, and it's a big one.

Here's what you need to know: the San Antonio Express News reporte...d that $50 million from the Major Events Trust may have been paid improperly to Formula One. And guess what: our Comptroller brokered the deal, even though a comptroller's job is to make sure deals are done right.

As the watchdog the Comptroller can't be the deal maker. If the watchdog is the deal maker, you don't have a watchdog! See for yourself - we've got work to do!

Having a great time at the AFP conference with Kathie Glass, Brandee Brown, and others. I was very surprised that none of the other Texas Comptroller Candidates were in attendance to such an important conference as Americans for Prosperity.

If Texas won't pay children's college, why would they pay your retirement?

If the State is willing to renege on Constitutionally mandated contracts with Children for their education and people who have 60 more years of voting. Why do you think the State will pay a retiree's pensions contracts when the funds have an unfunded liability of almost $54billion?

Texas Economy is GREAT! and I'll make sure it stays that way.

The 50 state economies, from worst to first - No. 3: Texas

Since the discovery of vast oil reserves around the turn of the 20th century, Texas has been an economic powerhouse. Energy continues to be a huge part of the Texas economy, but many industries have a large presence in the state. Here's how Texas did on our measures:

  • Texas had a 3.3 percent increase in nonfarm payroll jobs...
  • The working-age population grew by 1.3 percent
  • Exports grew by 4.1 percent to about $279 billion, solidifying Texas' lead in international exports among the states.

Davy Crockett - Not Yours to Give

This is an excerpt from The Life of Colonel David Crockett, a book I have cherished since I was child. These ideas I will hold strong as Texas Comptroller.

The truth about the Texas Budget clear and easy...

Comparison of the last budget proposal-Fiscal Year Total Spending Percentage
2012-2013 $173.5 billion
2014-2015 $195.5 billion 11.5% Increase
Percentage wise this is where your money is going, and the problem is where to take money from.  Now you can see where it is going.  What would you cut to fund something else?  The frightening thing is that the final vote on passage stood at 29-2 with only two voting no, Sen. Wendy Davis of Ft. Worth and Sen. Sylvia Garcia of Houston. 

As Comptroller I will never lie or use emotional manipulation to coerce my fellow Texans, no matter how dire the circumstances you know you will always get the truth.  My name is Ben Sanders and I want to be the next Comptroller of Texas.  I am qualified and ready to lead.

Sanders is only Comptroller Candidate to Release Tax Returns

In the comptroller's race, Libertarian Ben Sanders was the only hopeful to provide tax returns. A spokesman for Rep. Harvey Hilderbran, R-Kerrville, said his campaign “intends to release tax returns but will do so on our own timetable.”
