Rick Perry’s Plan To Cover Texas’ Uninsured: Pretend They Don’t Exist | ThinkProgress

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has decided that the easiest way to cope with the number of uninsured people in his state — one out of every four Texans lacks an insurance plan — is to pretend that there is no problem at all.

Today, Perry announced that Texas would turn down millions in federal funding offered under the Affordable Care Act to expand the state’s Medicaid program, despite the 25 percent of Texans without insurance. But pressed by Fox News anchor Jenna Lee, Perry couldn’t come up with a good way to cover those who don’t have insurance in the state.
