    Every five hours a child dies from abuse or neglect in the US.

    The latest government figures show an estimated 1,770 children were killed as a result of maltreatment in 2009.

    A recent congressional report concludes the real number could be nearer 2,500.

    In fact, America has the worst child abuse record in the industrialized world.
    America's Child Death SHAME

    Now let's take a look at Governor Perry's state of Texas...

    In Texas last year, 10.2 of every 1,000 children suffered confirmed abuse or neglect, according to the 2010 annual report released earlier this year by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

    The picture was even more grim in Lubbock County — 22.7 of every 1,000 children, which totalled 1,523 young victims here last year. The region, which includes the South Plains and Texas Panhandle, had a rate of 19.4 percent.

    So what does the Governor do to combat this horrific record of child abuse in his state?

    Why, cut funding of course!

    because that would mean it isn't just evil, sinister, baby eating Republicans that cut funding in areas she thinks funding shouldn't be cut.

    Texas receives more money from the federal government than it pays in federal taxes.

    Texas is a welfare queen!

    Just like collective bargaining and the war. When their side does it its nothing to get upset about. But if a repub makes the exact same move. ITS WAR!!
