Editor:

Republican politicians like Texas Sen. Donna Campbell make a big deal about being Christians when campaigning, yet when it comes to caring for the least among us, she and other Republicans like Sen. Dan Patrick turn a blind eye. They had a golden opportunity to make the lives of hundreds of thousands of Texans better by expanding Medicaid as offered by Obamacare.
