Statements from New York
Texas "ranks third in teen pregnancies... and it is No. 1 in repeat teen pregnancies."
In Texas, "sexting is a felony sex offense for teenagers — that can mean up to 10 years in prison."
Says that "data from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities suggest that the Texas budget gap is worse than New York’s, about as bad as California’s, but not quite up to New Jersey levels."
"In 1981, Matagorda, Brazoria, and Galveston Counties all opted out of the Social Security program for their employees. Today, their program is very, very well-funded and there is no question about whether it’s going to be funded in" years to come.
