And, where in the Constitution of the USA or Texas that guarantees medical treatment of any kind to any citizen? Don't bother to look, cause it aint there. That's the problem with our country today...everybody expects Government to supply things for them. If the patients need medication, most of the large pharmaceutical companies provide free medication to indigent patients. How about the staff take a salary reduction? How about the local cities and counties getting private donations to help the institutions? The Government has to reduce the budget and they have to do it somewhere. The government supported institutions in the Valley, like elsewhere in the state, must learn to budget their money and live within their means like the rest of the state. I have learned from first hand experience, that when medical care is 'free' to the patients they will obuse it and schedule trips to the doctors office much more often that is really necessary. Many illnesses and ailments don't need a clinic or doctor visit, but if it is 'free', then the patient will use it.

Stop whining about the poor poor people in the Valley and stop crying about balancing the budget on the back of the poor. If you do a little checking, most of the poor you are talking about do not pay taxes and probably never have but avail themselves of clinics and doctors paid for by the harding working citizens of Texas who actually do pay taxes. I have no problem of providing care to the poor, but when you have no money then you do not provide that care or the care is reduced.
