This statement was issued today by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott regarding the 11th Circuit's order fast-tracking the challenge to the health care takeover:

As a moderate Republican, I have never understood the Republican Party's distaste for our new national health care. My brother lost his job in 08. Because he has considerable skills, he quickly found another one, but with... More ›
