Jenkins of Notre Dave vs. Obamacare requirements, quoting Obama against Obamacare requirements:
Jenkins, who was criticized by dozens of bishops for inviting President Barack Obama to speak at commencement, noted that during Obama’s commencement speech at Notre Dame in May 2009 he said he favored “a sensible conscience clause.” Obama said the clause would give anti-abortion health care providers the right to refuse to perform the procedure.
Jenkins said the proposed change in law “runs contrary to a 40-year history of federal conscience statutes” and doesn’t reflect the sensible approach Obama talked about in his speech at Notre Dame.

HOW? jesus that is f*cking STUPID, shove your “we the people” bullshit pal. perry is a f*ckin moron, and its a disgrace that there is actually a segment of society thats stupid enough to fall for his crap.
Apart from the nuanced style, notice the “low pay, no benefits” criticism of Texas jobs, which is standard rebuttal of Texas employment achievement.
Dunno if or to what extent it’s true, for sake of argument will accept it and ask: Is it possible that prevailing union wages in other states and generous health insurance benefits are a hindrance to higher employment?
UAW people lived too high on the hog for decades, is that not so? Not? In any case, we do have an argument here, one that is too yucky for libs to consider, they being the utopians which they have come to be.
