I guess most of you have missed the part where it's the Obama administration, not the legislators, that are ceasing funding of women's health programs. Texas stopped the miniscule percentage that states fund, so now the federal government is stopping the gigantic portion that they fund. It's like the drought issue: the feds are making the people suffer for the sake of political maneuvering.

And you people want MORE government programs and control?

Hey Ladies and Gentlemen,
This is all part of that "Change you can believe in."

The arm of executive power will reach first into states that do not fully exercise their governance rights. We've seen this time and time again. Texas, although legislatively kooky in its own right, does not seem to take their state powers seriously. This is shown in Waco, Tulia, and now this. Texas seems to just agree judicially with the feds and leave it at that.
