Well, well, Ross Perot,who would've thought. Finally someone doing something worthwhile with their billions.
I think women in Texas are very happy with his contribution.

Very nice! If my was Margot I think I would keep my maiden name rather that be Margot Perot. I know. I always think of strange things?

Amazing. Kudos to Ross Perot. I voted for him twice in 1992 and 1996. I had a lot of admiration for Perot, and never did trust Clinton.

Thank you Ross Perot and your foundation for donating the money to PP, wish others would do the same, the organization does help women with all their medical issues besides provide legal abortions

Wow!!! Who'd think someone actually is FOR Planned Parenthood in Texas? I thought all Texans were against PP! Well, I guess there are some people that are actually smart in Texas!

Perot's initial nest egg came from getting the contract to automate CA's Medicaid (MediCal) claims payment system--a project that went years past implementation date and millions in cost over-runs beyond the contract amount without delivering for CA...seems kinda ironic he's giving a small portion of what CA's taxpayers gave him for TX health services...

I actually voted for him years ago. I wonder what changes there may have been had he become president. Thank you sir.
