Texas Attorney General Files Legal Action Challenging the Obama Administration's Efforts to Shut Down the Texas Women's Health Program

AUSTIN -- The Texas Attorney General's Office today filed legal action against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, challenging the Obama Administration's decision to stop federal funding for Texas' Women's Health Program. The Obama Administration decided it will no longer provide federal funding for the Women's Health Program solely because State law prohibits taxpayer funds from going to organizations that perform elective abortions.

The Obama Administration's decision interferes with Texas' successful efforts to promote women's health. The State's legal action seeks to overturn the Administration's misguided decision to shut down Texas' successful Women's Health Program and seeks to reinstate the federal funding that previously supported the program.

Alvin, you are correct and my apologies to GENERAL Powell. When I typed that, I had just gotten off the phone with my cousin who is a retired Air Force Col. and I guess I had Col. on my mind. I misspoke or rather miss typed

Colin Powell retired a 4 star General, not a Colonel. The demotion is inappropriate regardless of your political opinions.

"We can all have opinions, but they don't count. " Your opinion counts when you vote. If you're a Democrat, your vote probably counts more than once.
