While your stae has the most uninsured people in the nation - over 25% have no health care whatsoever dingleberry!
And what happens when Obama expanded Medicaid to states like yours? Your idiot governor refuses it! 100% coverage with no state funds until 2016 - then on a sliding scale, your state would pay only 10% of the costs by 2022 - talk about stupidity!
"Texas would be eligible for $164 billion in federal aid to pay for the expansion through 2020. But Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst says Texas' share of $27 billion would be a heavy burden.
"Quite frankly," he said, "the Medicaid system is broken and by simply adding a million and a half to two million more people to Medicaid will not solve the problem."
Texas will also be the largest state to refuse to create the state-run health care exchanges that would allow people to shop for affordable coverage. In a letter to the Obama administration, Texas Gov. Rick Perry called the requirements "brazen intrusions into the sovereignty of our state."

Guess who pays for those not covered dipshit? I'll give you time to think that one through.
Bullshit liberal propaganda.....Texas is the top private sector job produceer in the nation and one of the top in the world, dumbasz. Those employers also provide health insurance...

You're regurgitating a BS story when Perry was a candidate for President. The gullible left will fall for anything...no bait, just a bare hook statement from a liberal writer. LMAO

Since Texas has a projected balanced budget for 2013, your state is in massive debt, more people moving here each week, leaving California...I guess the medical situation here is just fine. But go on believing your far left writers...they're so.....uh, genuine.

Did you ever find that 98,000 acre Ranch that Rolling Stone claimed Bush had in Paraguay to rule the new world order???? No one seems to be able to locate it since 08. Mind pointing it out for us...the Paraguay Army wants to know where it's at!!

You're so friggen gullible.

December 21, 2012 • Austin, Texas
Gov. Rick Perry has appointed Bob Yancy of College Station to the Statewide Health Coordinating Council for a term to expire Aug. 1, 2015. The council evaluates long-term local, regional and statewide health needs and provides overall guidance in development of the Texas State Health Plan, which is submitted to the governor every two years.
Gov. Rick Perry helped break ground on a new 150,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility for Pactiv LLC. This multimillion dollar capital investment will expand Pactiv’s current Corsicana operations and create 200 jobs. Earlier this fall, Gov. Perry announced the state would invest $930,000 through the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) to finalize this expansion in Texas.

Thursday, December 20, 2012 • Paris, Texas • Press Release
Gov. Perry Announces TEF Investment Bringing More Than 390 Jobs to Paris
Gov. Rick Perry announced the James Skinner Baking Co. is creating a new bakery production facility in Paris, along with 393 jobs and $25 million in capital investment. The state is providing $1.8 million through the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) to close the deal on this job creation.

Now go tell Cuomo to get off his sorry ass and quit making blame for that storm. Do something...when he grows up he might be as good as one of the Texas counties..LMAO

Fox won one day moron - and not by much.
Understand what P2 means? Go read what you posted -0 and thanks for proving only those between the age of 2 to 25 watched Fox - all other ages watched MSNBC.
Fcuking morons on this site!
I was LMAO when that idiot posted the numbers that destroyed his own argument, and proved my point… these right-wing idiots are completely losing it as they watch the bigoted America that they felt so superior in being taken over by true patriots of different ethnicities and colors. MSNBC is now the #1 Cable News Network and they showed how much power their Primetime lineup has by helping re-elected President Obama…

I am in a state of euphoria as I watch these pathetic right-wingers suffer in their delusions and desperations to try and explain why we kicked their ass on November 6th.

That particular person predicted that Pelosi would return as SOH. Try to keep up.

Yes, the GOP kept the house, even getting votes in districts that obama won...When the American people say stop the spendathon...that's exactly what they mean.

You're so friggen gullible.
Can't talk to children - I'll make this so simple even you dummy might get it - highly doubtful, but I'll give it a whirl;

"But that doesn't mean that all is well with employment in the Lone Star State. Texas leads the nation in minimum-wage jobs, and many positions don't offer health benefits. Also, steep budget cuts are expected to result in the loss of more than 100,000 jobs.

Perhaps most importantly, Texas can't create jobs fast enough to keep up with its rapidly growing population. Since 2007, the state's number of working-age residents expanded by 6.6%, nearly twice the national average."

http://money.cnn.com/2011/08/12/news/economy/...

Need more?

Your stae ranks #5 in the most low wage jobs in the nation - Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansa, and Alabama beat you out - funny how the top 10 low wage states, recieving the most in federal funds, are your state and every other red state in these charts - you should enlighten yourself and actually read this - it even has pictures with charts and graphs, for those like you;

http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2...

And this;

"U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett told ABC News on Aug. 11, 2011, that Gov. Rick Perry’s rosy depictions of employment conditions in Texas aren’t entirely accurate.

"Twenty-five states have lower unemployment than Texas does today," the Austin Democrat said, adding that "we're tied with Mississippi for more minimum-wage jobs than anywhere in the United States."

"In sheer numbers, Texas had 268,000 hourly workers earning minimum wage and 282,000 paid below the minimum wage, the bureau says, the most of any state by a wide margin. Almost 13 percent of the nation’s hourly workers paid at or below the minimum wage were in Texas, the second most-populous state with more than 25 million residents, or about 8 percent of the nation’s population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Mississippi, with almost 3 million residents, had 34,000 and 29,000 hourly workers, respectively, earning the minimum wage or less.

We rate Doggett’s statement True.

You won a big pile of shit. That's what you won. I wouldn't brag about Barry Benghazi too much. The country is going into the toilet thanks to "Winners" like you and the rest of the stupid people that voted for the "Butcher of Benghazi"

People crack me up. They live in a fantasy world of false heros and wipe events from their minds like the Benghazi cover-up. Why did Obama try to cover up the terrorist attacks in Benghazi? He failed at the cover up because he's stupid. And Rice and Hillary are stupid for lying for him. But Why? Why did he risk making a complete fool of himself as well as ruining the careers of Rice and Hillary? He even failed at making a cover up. He's a buffoon. And people say they won? Won what? A buffoon on the White House? Man, if that's winning America really is screwed.
Thanks a lot for the buffoon who can't even lie right. Good luck with gaining respect that way.
