is it true or false that sam houston cut government jobs and salaries

  • social studies -

    This is very misleading, to the point of being deceptive.

    In the late 1830's, the main threat and enemy in Texas was the Commanches, with which Sam Houston negioated a peace treaty. After that treaty, Houston greatly reduced the funding for the "fighting forces" then under Texas rule(
    rangers) and local state funded "deputized" rangers. The were almost disbaned. In the last of his term, they were disbanded.
    So did he cut government jobs? Yes. Did he cut salaries? yes.
    How many rangers were there? at the peak during that time it was 150. In 1845 it went to zero. Is that a great significant cut in government jobs?
