    Makes a lot of sense doesn't it. This is what is coming to all states with the Pubs in office. It makes me ill just thinking about it. Republicans are so Christians they could careless if people have healthcare or any social problems. These are mainly the working poor. They are pro birth, but not pro life. The ACA is no different that other premiums.

    It makes total sense. The less insurance the better.

    Everyone. Insurance is, essentially, really expensive credit. The less debt we take on, and the more we pay as we go, the better off we'll be.

    No the corps are getting away with not paying insurance and everyone deserves health insurance. Keep the Pubs in maj in congress and Texas will become the norm.

    Lets just shut down all hospitals and no one ,, even the Trump and congress get medical care, how does that sound?

    You talking about GDP? B/c Texas falls way down the list if you're talking about average income.

    I mean pop. Even so look at the numbers. They probably should start paying state income tax. Lots of rich people in Texas, oil capital of the US. Its just there are lots of poor people there as well, class divide is huge.
