I think it's amusing that Rick Perry is so upset about federal money being withdrawn. Of course, I always think it's amusing when conservatives complain about the federal government not being there for them. Beyond that, however, I think this is a bit of a risky move. In a way, it'll punish the poorer women of Texas for something that the Texas legislature did. On the other hand, Sebelius is probably on strong legal ground. If that's what federal policy says, and the Texas statehouse knew the consequences, then the blame ultimately falls on them. And, given the fact that other states are planning something similar, it's probably best that Sebelius pick this fight now, before it spreads. That noise you hear in the background is Republicans getting up their bluster. Can't wait to hear Romney, Santorum, Limbaugh, McConnell, Boehner and all the rest complaining about this. I'm sure it'll turn into a bitchfest in which Sebelius and Obama get some kind of fictitious kickback for defending Planned Parenthood. Those Republicans are so predictable.
