Happy #HealthPolicyValentines Day!
We put together this great little video to express our love for the idea of expanding health to all Texans. We hope you enjoy our #HealthPolicyValentines! Please share this video with the hashtag #HealthPolicyValentines if you support expanding health care.
Did you know that at least 766,000 Texans would be eligible for affordable health care if Texas expanded Medicaid?
According to Census data from September 2015, Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured residents in the nation. In fact, 26 percent of ALL uninsured U.S. citizen adults live in Texas. We can and must do better for our fellow Texans. Their health, and the health of our state depend on it.
Oh, Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured, you say?
It’s time to #ClosetheGap!
Wishing you a Happy #HealthPolicyValentines Day!
