First, let's start with Texas and the uninsured- the 25%ratio is for AL OF THE POPULATION - not jut the Hispanic population - let's see your figures, since I've already provided you with multiple links from various sources correlating exactly what the facts are in your state.<quoted text>
Gov. Perry turned down quite a bit of ARR Act also..too many strings attached..NONE went into the budget as you losers claimed. That was against the law...however my town got a new city hall..and since Texas puts in 240 billion into the federal coffers each year they should get some in return. LMAO
NEW YORK'S hispanic population uninsured at 23%...you don't have a fkn point, boy.
The statistics in Texas are also for hispanics.....your population being smaller...you have more uninsured...DUH
California has 22% uninsured...
Nevada has 25%, Florida has 25%...your fkn point is useless..but it's good propaganda for the socialists because Texas doesn't vote for oblumber or kiss his ass as your state loves to do.."Throw us more money!" LMAO
Texas 8 billion surplus projected for 2014. New York..more red ink.
Next, Texas puts less dollars into the federal system than you receive;
" The citizens of Texas certainly pay into the federal government, but multiple studies have found that they get even more in return. Over a 25 year period, Texans have, on average, received more in federal money than they have paid into the system. In 2009, for example, the people of Texas paid $163 billion in federal taxes, and in return they received $224 billion from the federal government in the form block grants, Medicare and Medicaid aid, and retirement and disability assistance. In other words, the state of Texas made a $61 billion profit off the federal government in 2009. If they really did secede, the state of Texas would either have to stop giving their elderly citizens health care, or raise taxes to make up for the billions they would lose in federal citizens."
Next, how much of the ARRI actually went to fix Texas's fiscal woes?
"Texas Gov. Rick Perry likes to tell Washington to stop meddling in state affairs. He vocally opposed the Obama administration's 2009 stimulus program to spur the economy and assist cash-strapped states.
Perry also likes to trumpet that his state balanced its budget in 2009, while keeping billions in its rainy day fund.
But he couldn't have done that without a lot of help from ... guess where? Washington.
Turns out Texas was the state that depended the most on those very stimulus funds to plug nearly 97% of its shortfall for fiscal 2010, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Even budget deficits are bigger in Texas
Texas, which crafts a budget every two years, was facing a $6.6 billion shortfall for its 2010-2011 fiscal years. It plugged nearly all of that deficit with $6.4 billion in Recovery Act money, allowing it to leave its $9.1 billion rainy day fund untouched.
"Stimulus was very helpful in getting them through the last few years," said Brian Sigritz, director of state fiscal studies for the National Association of State Budget Officers, said of Texas."
Lie to yourself all you like - you can't lie to me buddy.
