Well, that about sums up the hypocrisy

In Texas, and so much of conservative social policy your job is simply to get born so you can get to work at a low-paying part-time job and be disqualified from any assistance.

Texas State Rep. Jodie Laubenberg (R), the author of the radically anti-abortion bill making its way through the Texas Legislature this week, argued for hours on Tuesday that lawmakers should support her bill because of its strong protections for a person's "pre-born life."


But back in 2007, she made the case against treating the unborn as people -- at least, when it comes to qualifying for health care services.

During a House debate on an appropriations bill that year, Laubenberg, a staunch conservative, put forward an amendment that would require expectant mothers to wait three months before they could begin receiving prenatal and perinatal care under the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, a program that helps cover uninsured children in low-income families.
You MUST have children you MUST NOT have any help.

What a piece of work these people are.

Gaw-ud, damn, she makes Perry look like one of the smarter ones in Texas politics, and that's going some.

I know that not all of Texas is that way, but why do they keep electing so many of the dumb, mean ones to public office?
