Quote of the Day

“We cannot afford to lose the Medicaid funding for low-income women to have health care services.  We can’t keep turning back federal funds that every state gets and then try to find money in our budget, which is already being cut in key areas like education.” 

— Republican U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, criticizing Gov. Rick Perry for his war on women’s preventive care.

I don’t have much regard for Bailey Hutchison, but I’m glad that – although she’s a token female in the White male-dominated Republican hierarchy – she has the decency to turn her back on the patriarchal decision by the state of Texas to control women’s health care.
