GOP governor cuts health care to take anti-abortion stand
By Jeffrey Collins, Associated Press

"Gov. Henry McMaster is removing $16 million for health care from the South Carolina budget to make sure no taxpayer money goes to abortion providers, even though some fellow Republicans said less than $100,000 of it would go to Planned Parenthood."
"Some Republicans opposed removing any of the money, saying it was almost all for family planning and abstinence. They also warned that filling the funding hole created by the veto might hurt law enforcement or children with autism."

The Republican governor has only one goal in mind and it's obviously not to help his fellow South Carolinians as his fellow Republicans have identified. No doubt many women and others in South Carolina will remember that McMaster removed health care which translated into leaving other important groups unfunded or in jeopardy as well when they go to vote next time and they will no doubt have the governor likewise removed from office.

But the governor's office said eliminating all that money would keep 700,000 women and children from getting prescriptions through Medicaid.
The Federal government partners with the States to manage federal funds. When a state mismanages the allocation of those funds...the courts step in and slap down the morons.

Sessions got his ass slapped for attempting to divert funds Congress allotted to the States. And now a Federal Judge will slap Gov. McMaster back into joint.
