    'free market' in Texas has been an absolute disaster for everyone.

    Sadly, the process of getting this through the Texas legislature was greatly aided by Democrats, including one in particular from Dallas. Steven D. Wolens was best known for supporting Senate Bill 7, deregulating Texas energy markets, which have suffered from under-investment and lack of modernization ever since.
