Today in Texas History – March 21

From the Annals of Bloviation –  In 2010, then Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot made the following statement regarding the recently passed Affordable  Care Act: “The federal health care legislation passed tonight violates the United States Constitution and unconstitutionally infringes upon Texans’ individual liberties. To protect all Texans’ constitutional rights, preserve the constitutional framework intended by our nation’s founders, and defend our state from further infringement by the federal government, the State of Texas and other states will legally challenge the federal health care legislation.”

Wrong, wrong and wrong.  As our latest in a long line of Poor Idiot Governors, Abbot has cost Texas literally billions of dollars in pandering to his Tea Party base. Not to mention the many dollars Abbot has wasted as AG and Governor in frivolous litigation.
