    Hate to say it guys, but her filibuster is ultimately meaningless.
    Two other bills were scheduled to be voted upon after the vote for the abortion bill, including a key transportation bill that would affect the portion of Interstate 35 that runs through Texas.
    There’s already been talk of Perry calling another special session so that both these two bills and the abortion bill can receive a proper vote.
    Knowing Perry, he will continue to call special sessions until such time as all three are voted upon, and so the more she leads others in filibustering, the more expensive it will be for taxpayers here in Texas because of the money that will need to be allocated to pay for each special session.
    So the more you cheer her on, the more of my $$$ you’re throwing down the drain.

    There is already a page on Facebook, “Wendy Davis for Governor of Texas!”

    I take it you missed the part about the abortion filibuster also killing those bills that were set for a vote after the abortion bill was to be voted upon?

    Wow, barf! The thought of Rick Perry in a Speedo!

    Respect the lady, AND Rand Paul for actually keeping to the real rules for filibuster, it IS the process that is important to maintain and recognize.

    I take it that you’re not aware of just how the legislature works here in Texas.
    The legislature only meets for 90 days every other year, the idea being that it forces representatives to earn a living outside of their seat.
    A side effect of this, however, is that the last few days of the period represent a massive flurry of activity as people hustle to introduce bills and move them through committees so that they can get on the docket.
    I’ll have to go back and look, but most likely these three bills were simply the last ones out the gate and so were put up for a vote in the order in which they cleared committee and made it to the main docket.

    You Texas conservatives should ask yourself a question. In Roe vs Wade the SCOTUS set out the limits on what a state can do to restrict abortion. Your legislators are trying to pass a law which will violate those limits. This will result in a lawsuit which will eventually go to the SCOTUS, which will refuse to revisit something already settled in Roe vs Wade. The effect of this will YOUR legislators will have wasted millions of your dollars in legal fees to pretend they actually care about people.
