What the Census Revealed About Health Care

Posted on 9/2/2008 5:19 PM

I recently met with local residents struggling to pay their health care bills and get medical attention for their families.
The U.S. census results released this week help explain what's happening: Texas still "leads" the nation in the rate of uninsured residents. Nationwide, employers continue to drop their employees' insurance.
As this Texas woman with cancer learned, even with insurance it can be tough to get the care you need and pay the bills.
Clearly we need to redouble our efforts to expand access to affordable insurance in Texas, and make sure insurance companies are truly working for Texas families.
