I returned to Texas a year ago after 40 years away and since then I have been appalled at the callous indifference of the average Texan towards the fact that their so called wonderful state has more medically uninsured people than any other. Obamcare isn't the best solution, but it will help. Are Texans too ignorant to realize that the Texas or maybe it's Perry's approach to health care is costing the insured money? When I moved here, my health insurance premium went up significantly although most costs are lower in Texas than in my previous state. When I called to ask why, the answer was because of the cost-shifting due to care of the uninsured, premiums had to be higher. My taxes and yours are going to support Medicaid patients in other states, but not a dime is going to the Texans I would prefer to help. Since until retirement I was in the health care industry, I know that not one hospital in Bexar County is the equivalent of at least 2 of the hospitals in the health care region I moved from. I'm not saying they are inadequate, but that they can't afford to be cutting edge or absolute best; too many of their resources go towards covering the healthcare costs of the uninsured. Until I moved here, I did not personally know people who had no health insurance, but now I find members of my own extended family have jobs without benefits and no other recourse for affordable health insurance. If Senator Comyn gave a damn about the citizens of Wilson County, he would be trying to amend Obamacare into an ideal healthcare plan, not throwing it out and putting more of his constituents at risk of death because they couldn't afford to seek medical care until too late. Or maybe he doesn't care because not enough of them vote republican.
