Texas to Defund Planned Parenthood

God I love Texas. And what a year for Texas. Voter ID passed, sanctuary cities bans are in the works, going after the TSA pat downs, slicing out of control spending, wonderful job creation, the sonogram bill, and now defunding planned parenthood. Of course not everything I wanted to see was done, but hey... did we ever truly get everything we wanted for Christmas? This guy didn't!

The Texas Legislature approved a bill Monday that would both compel the state to push the Obama administration to convert Texas’s Medicaid program into a block grant and defund abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.

The Texas state legislature has approved the Senate Bill 7 Conference Committee Report that would revoke the taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business. With the actions by the state House and Senate, the measure now heads to pro-life Gov. Rick Perry for his signature.

Way to go Texas, way to go.
