Why is it a preconceived notion that everyone without health insurance wants it but can't get it? I know many who just choose to risk not paying for it until they are older.

Only a fool would do something like this. Health insurance is as vital an expense as food or gasoline.

Texas is a little different when it comes to health coverage. The state has a lot of retail & ag job which typically don't offer health insurance. It also has a huge immigrant population, of which approx 30% are uninsured likely due to where they work or cost of plan. TX also is very hands off with regulations in this area and insurance companies deny coverage for many or charge higher prices for coverage. Not horrible in principle but it does price out many. Also, Perry refuses to expand government assistance programs bc he states it will bankrupt the state.

I thought deregulation of the health industry would lower prices

The state has failed miserably in the health care field. Whether or not the government is involved, something is wrong when such a high percentage doesn't own insurance.

So are you no longer arguing that TX education is abysmal?

Gov. Rick Perry is FOS:

quote:

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.


quote:

Even as Perry requested the Recovery Act money, he railed against it. On the very same day he asked for the funds, he set up a petition titled "No Government Bailouts."

That kind of happens in rural bumfrick areas. It's not unique to Texas.

He doesn't know what he's arguing. The boy is trying to state (w/o actually coming out and saying it) that he is intellectually smarter than facts.
But he he can't prove these facts. But if he says it and repeats it enough...he will start to believe and everyone will bask in his smartness.

I do wish Perry would stop bringing in more out-of-staters with liberal voting habits.


Regardless of anything, Obama has ensured I vote republican for the remainder of my life.

The America I picture is an America where people have ample economic opportunity and a comfortable life, aka not Texas.

If you want a job in Texas, you can find a job. There's a reason we are being flooded with people from across the US... Because they can find a job & affordable housing here along with a good public school system. There are more than ample opportunities here for employment and a comfortable life.

How is that not the case with shite tons of jobs and a low cost of living?

I can't wait to be entertained with your answer.
