    Today's ruling enjoining Obamacare halts an unconstitutional exertion of federal power over the American health care system while our multistate coalition lawsuit works its way through the courts, our lawsuit seeks to effectively repeal Obamacare, which will give President Donald Trump and Congress the opportunity to replace the failed social experiment with a plan that ensures Texans and all Americans will again have greater choice about what health coverage President Trump and Congress need and who will be President Trump and Congress doctor.

  5. Wendy Murphy:

    Herring said in a statement. The fact that Republican attorneys general are suing to block the ERA, and that they now have the support of the Trump Administration, is absolutely repugnant. FLASHBACK: WHY THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT IS A FEMINIST DISASTER On Tuesday, supporters of the ERAfiled a federal lawsuitin Massachusetts aimed at clearing a legal path for adoption of the amendment. The lawsuit argues that because the deadline was set forth in legislation authorizing states to ratify the amendment and not in the three-sentence amendment itself its not constitutionally binding and Virginias vote would put the amendment over the top. We are not surprised that the Trump administration acted swiftly to declare its opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment.
