Medicaid Expansion under ACA in Texas

Hello Friends,

Governor Rick Perry millions of under-privileged poor Texans who do not have any Health Coverage will be covered under The Affordable Care ACT (ACA) expansion of MEDICAID!

My Physician wife's practice is partly dependent on MEDICAID and its viability. Please allow the expansion of MEDICAID to occur in Texas under The Affordable Care ACT.

FACT: If states choose to expand Medicaid, the federal government will cover 100 percent of the costs from 2014 to 2016. The feds' contribution will begin to decrease in 2017, but will never be less than 90 percent, under the ACA.

That's why I created a petition to Governor Rick Perry, Texas Governor, The Texas State House, The Texas State Senate, and Governor Rick Perry, which says:

"Please ACCEPT the FREE EXPANSION of MEDICAID under The Affordable Care ACT."

Will you sign this petition? Click here:

Thanks!

1. Please forgive me, I do not mean any harm to you but it is time for Texas Republican taxpayers

to pay by additional taxes and income tax not only for Texans who are uninsured but also for the uninsured of other states (like New Mexicans). Texans either voted for the Republican Platform of Rick Perry telling Texans that he is refusing the ACA and the Medicaid Expansion or they did not go vote against the obstructionist. This is a SATIRE. I will sign your petition.

Texans are learning that they need to get out and vote this miserable lot out of office.

2. Texas needs an income tax, in my opinion, and have thought this for years.

Plus some Democrats in office.

3. Perry is going to the TEA Party Texas Legislature to get taxpayer money in order to pay private

insurance companies to insure the poor. He wants to move Texas tax money in to private business. He, in no way cares about the uninsured or the taxpayer.

The Texas share of the Medicaid Fund will go to other states if it is turned down.
