“Finally, intelligence and common sense. I think this is a good beginning to undo some of the abusive practices of the "for profit" colleges which has enslaved many former college students. I never understood how the banks were allowed to profit by simply being the middle-man on tax payers dimes for so long. And honestly while I do not think the opportunity of higher education was appreciated by some of the young (the decision to sign a $10k loan a year) , I thought the setup of paying 8% by the unemployed for a loan was wrong when banks paid less to borrow our money without any risk. Now still I hope this bill address colleges that are apart of the abuses as well.”

“Well in Texas, while there is a victory with guns the cost to Taxpayers because of the challenges in the court goes into the millions - http://lonestarproject.net/- all the while the legislature cuts funding to education. These laws are so unnecessary, It just caters to the lobbyist making money on fear. And yes I am laughing at Missouri.”

“This is Post Plant Explosion Perry, that understands line about "No Regulations" is not as good of a selling point as it was is not as kind as he thought after presidential run #1. Also think about the money he is giving up on publicly condemning but "kind of sort of thinking about doing is the president would do something but not wanting" Medicare Expansion. If you understand that statement, you understand Rick Perry.”

“What did anyone expect at the NRA Pep Rally? With extreme fear-mongers Sarah Palin, Glen Beck and Cruze. I am glad they bring this rhetoric of words, minute by minute because as Jon shows you, its HYPOCRISY super-sized. And lies always catch you by the time elections come around. The sad part is the people supporting them and the money given. And don't bother debating folks that make-up statistics, the self deceiving reality will collapse one day and thank God for Prozac. I just hope that don't have access to the gun at that point.”

“Romney interrupted the moderator way too much! He was shut down and rightfully so! He tried to bully a truth, something Roger Aisles does everyday...He should have first - Answered the questions.... He never did, just blame and said If I were it would be but NEVER said how.... 2nd He was wrong and tried to coerce by hinting as if to ask the moderator! She answered 3rd He understood even the audience was sick of lies, blame and NO ANSWERs or SOLUTIONS... Im sorry but that is the honest truth not to mention - BINDER of WOMEN...., He wants Pell Grants and single homes are the problem of guns......Yeah he lost the debate but of course his MO (Repubs too) are to blame and make up an excuse.

“The Affordable Healthcare Act was common sense brought to the forefront. The problem is that Republicans did not implement and choose to demonize it. HERE ARE THE FACTS---- They gave us the Pharma Bill (thanks Bush) that exploded the debt, while seniors can thank them for the DONUT HOLE. For all those who talk about TAX, its CONTROLLING COST that YOU PAID FOR ANYWAY! And you wonder why an aspirin was $15 and meds in the US are 50 times higher? Again thank CONGRESS... The uninsured were not turned away thanks to Congress, and Insurance companies charged YOU and DENIED you service JUST BECAUSE THEY COULD... It was the WILD WILD WEST with Insurance companies putting Profits over Patients...HOW are requirement such as , women can’t be charged 150 percent more than men for insurance, they can’t be penalized for having had a C-section—and can count birth control as preventive care (which over 95)% use anyway. The CBO has blessed this bill showing that it will decrease the deficit by $109 billion. The efforts to repeal with the supreme court calls constitutional cost TAXPAYERS $30,000,0000 every time these Repubs do their "ACT of VALOR" for the mindless drones on their STAGE in the Chambers instead of utilizing this time to say work on a JOBs Bill or create legislation to stabilize the Post Office.”

Texas Loses Entire Women's Health Program Over Planned Parenthood Law

Commented Mar 20, 2012 at 00:47:11 in Politics

“My facts are coming from the actual legislature vote of 2011, not RICK PERRY who is telling you Obama pulled the plug. Nothing would have changed if not for Perry changing the language. Again, federal law says a state cannot take away the right or choice of a segment of the population such as" women" being able to choose the provider. But lets look forward since you listen to Perry. Perry says he will find the 35 million dollars to keep the program that he caused to disappear with the 2011 EMERGENCY Legislation. So we can continue this conversation then (lets not hold our breath on that promise). And by the way.. .Im a she not a boy..”

Texas Loses Entire Women's Health Program Over Planned Parenthood Law

Commented Mar 19, 2012 at 11:51:57 in Politics

“NO YOU ARE WRONG. First of all- THE 90% is for the Texas Womens Medicare initiative. NOT for Planned Parenthood! Secondly, NO funds go to ABORTION, its federal law and Texas in 2011 passed a law in 2011 saying ABORTION was outlawed with NO monies going to any provider who offers those services not get any funding even though no funds can go to the actual abortion. So a doctor too that would accept medicare (Woman's) program is also affected. So they took away the choice for woman who were on the program to used any doctor that offered those services even though they were not going there to get an abortion.”

peanutsintexas on Mar 19, 2012 at 23:47:07

“It is Obama and his minions that made the decision to take away 90% of the funding for the women. All Rick Perry did was to pull 10% of the state money to PP. He wasn't withholding any money from any other women's services clinics.

Get your facts straight boy”

Texas Loses Entire Women's Health Program Over Planned Parenthood Law

“The sad part is that Texans yell "FREEDOM" and MY RIGHTS (as in guns) all the time while taking money from the feds all the time! They took 6 billion dollars in 2009. As far as irresponsible, sadly its very much so to take a program that allows women to act more responsibly with sex and their bodies and allow it to go by the wayside for political games and pandering that will cost the state in more funds after unwanted births, population explosion and cost to educate a larger population ensues. Its also irresponsible to put faith in the decision of the Texas legislature and governor to make such a choice for the women of Texas.”

Texas Loses Entire Women's Health Program Over Planned Parenthood Law

Commented Mar 18, 2012 at 10:32:27 in Politics

“You are missing the point entirely. Lets see how this program which has been in effect for over10 years was NOT an issue until 2011. Secondly its sad that women are made to suffer with an ending of a program that is 90% funded by the government because the only requirement was that a woman could choose her provider. In 2011 Perry and the Texas legislature rewrote a law just changing the language (the law is already on the books that says no tax dollars go toward abortion) took away this program or the 190,000 women. Now you may not understand this but as a woman, the program helped in other way like controlling population, you know like when a woman has a baby and if for any reason like loss of job, divorce then the state may pick up the tab for the birth and the child. Which of course cost the state lots of money. Now as far as the "rainy day fund" the governor does not like to use it, that was proven when during our rainy day after the deficit in 2009- 2010 and the legislature had to twist his arm for funds. Now to build his mansion yes but for low-income women, I will definitely not hold my breath on that.”

peanutsintexas on Mar 18, 2012 at 12:08:15

“Planned Parenthood is not a government entity. It is a private, not-for-profit charity that receives part of its funding from the federal and state gov't. The federal gov't picks up 90% of the tab that Planned Parenthood receives from all gov't sources. About a third of PP's budget comes from all gov't sources, the rest comes from private donations.

It sounds to me that people like Warren Buffet and Barbara Streisand would save even more of their tax dollars by making a huge donation to PP to support these poor women in TX. They should send their fair share straight to the agency providing the services as opposed to sending it to the gov't first.”
