Perry vetoes Texas Equal Pay Act

Goodhair just vetoed the Texas equal pay act http://www.texastribune.org/2013/06/14/senator-perry-vetoed-equal-pay-bill/

Perry also vetoed a bill aimed at preventing pay discrimination against women, a measure that would have required railroad commissioners to resign before seeking another office, legislation that would have taken power and authority away from the University of Texas System Board of Regents, and a bill that would have changed the way Texas handles threatened and endangered species.


When you combine this veto with Goodhair adding abortion issues to the special session, it is clear that the GOP war on women is still in full force and effect

1. Wow.

What a prick! Let's hope that he doesn't get a chance to get near the Oval Office.

2. The only way he gets near the Oval Office

Is if he takes a White House tour.

3. State Senator Wendy Davis may run against Goodhair

State Senator Wendy Davis may be running against Goodhair for Governor. The trouble is that she is up for re-election in 2014 and so the Democrats may lose this state senate seat if she runs against Goodhair

4. Because Perry hates women

It's extremely difficult to get a bill passed in both houses in Texas. The fact that this bill even made it out of the House is amazing. For a republican controlled legislature - this was no easy task. And then to just have it be quashed by that idiot Perry.

I think he was especially aiming towards Senator Wendy Davis who authored and championed the bill.
