AUSTIN, TX – Attorney General Ken Paxton resolved an enforcement action against pharmaceutical manufacturer Apotex for reporting inflated drug prices to the Texas Medicaid program. Under the agreement, Apotex will pay Texas $26 million to resolve claims against it.
This settlement is the latest recovery in price reporting cases the Attorney General has brought under the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act since 1999, resulting in a cumulative recovery for Texas taxpayers of over $2.3 billion.
“Thanks to our Civil Medicaid Fraud Division’s commitment to Texas taxpayers, identifying and preventing Medicaid fraud continues to be a top priority in my office,” Attorney General Paxton said. “We will not allow pharmaceutical companies to take advantage of vulnerable Texans, and we will continue to be vigilant in cracking down on any abuse of this important program.”

AG Paxton: TX Lawsuit Results in Court Halting Biden Administration’s Unlawful Freeze of Deportations, Upholding Federal Law
AUSTIN, TX – Attorney General Ken Paxton today lauded the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas after it issued a nationwide preliminary injunction halting implementation of a portion of the Biden Administration’s unlawful memorandum to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The memorandum directed an almost complete freeze of deportations of illegal aliens, violating congressionally enacted immigration laws. The Court also found that the memorandum lacked “a rational explanation” and that the Biden Administration should have given Texas notice and an opportunity to comment on the freeze because it would have a “significant impact” on Texas. That impact would have been a significant financial cost to Texas and taxpayers.
“I fully support the Court’s decision to prevent implementation of the Biden Administration’s unlawful action and prioritize Texans’ safety and the rule of law. A freeze on deportations at this scale would undermine federal law, irreparably harm our great state, and directly endanger our citizens. Law and order must be upheld,” said Attorney General Paxton.
“I will continue to defend Texas against those who unlawfully ignore United States law in favor of their own policy preferences.”
State Legislatures Have A Duty Of Truth, And That Truth Is The Election Was Compromised
This is NOT something a Good Parent would go along with, much less do, and for everyones information, there is no way ANYONE should have gone along with how the Democrat Law Makers did their job these last 4 years, and I could have kept quiet if not for one thing: Our Country needed NET NEUTRALITY, and OUR CHILDREN NEEDED NET NEUTRALITY, and that didn’t matter to Democrats enough to just work together a little, just for Our Children.
September 2020 study revealed 353 U.S. counties with 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens.
There are eight states showing statewide registration rates exceeding 100%: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
We have eyewitnesses with claims of voter fraud all across the country, with signed affidavits.
Michigan recount witness told a panel of Michigan state lawmakers Tuesday, she witnessed a litany of voting irregularities, including the double-counting of thousands of votes and smuggled-in fake ballots.
MI Poll challenger said Poll Supervisor illegally gave contested votes to Democrat canidates.
USPS Contract Truck Driver Who Transferred 288,000 FRAUDULENT BALLOTS from NY to PA.
All the while, the FBI and the Department Of Justice are still Missing In Action. Which amounts to a coverup of election fraud.
Records show Obama DHS scanned Georgia Election Site in 2016.
It is an outrage that our own Federal Law Enforcement agencies have circumvented our laws to help the democrats in their attempts to impeach Our President.
I firmly believe each and every member of Our Circle, and every single Follower who lives in our country should Contact Your State Representitives, and your Federal Representatives NOW.
Everyone knows I am from Texas, and as I stand here, I ask every Texas Law Maker, both State Law Makers and Federal Law Makers, Our Governor, Our Attorney General, all of Our Law Enforcement Officers to PLEASE SPEAK UP, this is not something I am proud of, and where we are from this is NOT how to teach the VALUES necessary to become a Good Citizen to Our Children.
One more thing, in the summer of 2016, during the BLM demonstration, we had already lost 5 Law Enforcement Officers (I believe 1 Officer was working for Transit), and the demonstration had reached downtown, when the dude began shooting. When that first shot went to echoing thru downtown, every single one of Our Family all but jumped out of our chairs, as we scanned the television. In a millisecond of time, the marchers became the targets, and almost all the front marchers were men, but in that horrific instant, the Ladies began taking hits, and it was what I believe to be the worst thing imaginable. To this day, it is almost impossible to believe, or even think about happening in Our Great Country, but Dallas Law Enforcement apparently told the marchers to get behind them, and Our Dear Officers turned and faced that gunman.. Every single person in our living room was crying now, because I can still see it in my mind, those women weren’t standing behind the Officers and neither were the men, they were flat on the ground…
So, if anyone has any problem with what I have said, you think about one thing before saying the wrong thing, people in other countries have to worry about things like this, or the other canidate is killed, this is Our America the Beautiful, the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave.
