Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday that Texas will find the money to continue to fund the Women’s Health Program, no matter what the federal government does. But Planned Parenthood won't be allowed to participate — and the program may no longer be affiliated with Medicaid.

“We’re going to fund this program. … That’s a moot point,” Perry said. He declined to say where he'd get the roughly $35 million the federal government provides every year, but told reporters that the state would not drop the program that has become a political football between Washington and Texas.

“We’ll find the money. The state is committed to this program,” he told reporters. “This program is not going away.”

Ron Paul.... "Freedom for everyone. Not so fast, ladies".

Perry did more than expose how ignorant he truly is, he showed us all that there is no difference between parties, media with government presents us a choice where both are the same. Ron Paul is America's only hope for a different direction.
