    what, you want me to get a job and earn money and buy it myself? what are you, some kind of woman-hating fascist?
    What if you have no job or money? In Texas you are out of luck.
    Texas already gets the most money from the Feds of any state. Over $1.27 for every tax dollar they send to Washington. Like most Red States, sucking at the Fed Govt. teat is what they do best. I wish they would succeed and save us some bucks.

    Actually, IIRC, Texas is one that more or less breaks even.
    But you're right, most of the States on Fed Welfare are Red.

    That would be because most of the wealthiest americans live in blue states, like CT.

    Federal law prohibits Medicare/Medicade funding from being used for abortion. Texas just took a step to prevent fraud by not allowing abortion clinics to code procedures inaccurately.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    That's a bunch of crap, this was all about politics. If this had been done for non-political reasons, they would've excluded hospitals that do elective abortions. They didn't, they just specify that tax dollars can't be used to fund them.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Are you saying fraud is legal in Texas?
    Or are you saying coding the procedures inaccurately isn't fraud?
    Or both?

    Yes it is lol. When ever the fed offers new money for other programs its renegotiating the contact. The state can say no but they won't get the fed dollars. Sorta like a cell phone contract.

    Part of the reason why repubs want to make these programs block grants is to remove the contract nature of the money the fed gives to these stares, allowing the state to do whatever it wants and always get the money, removing the strings

    The Fed doesn't negotiate. The Fed dictates.

    Just like every cell phone company in America. The "take,it or,leave it approach" is why contacts typically work.
