Stand with our Democratic leaders

Texas has the highest rate of uninsured children and adults in the country. There are approximately 6 million of our fellow Texans that lack the access to doctors when they need them most -- that is nearly 24% of our population. Over 70% of the people on Medicaid are children. It is unconscionable to play politics with the lives of our most vulnerable.

One man, Governor Rick Perry, is standing in way of health coverage for millions of families, a $67 billion dollar economic output and the creation of an estimated 231,100 jobs by 2016 -- we must stand with our Democratic leadership to make Medicaid expansion a reality.
