    The GOP really has an issue with the Muslim minorities IMO.

Nearly three-quarters of non-elderly Texans who receive Medicaid are children; why? Are the little children responsible for pulling themselves up by the bootstraps before they even become adults?

    Why is healthcare a govt. responsibility is the better question. Healthcare is a personal choice issue and Texans are exercising their choice. I employed over 1200 employees and offered healthcare to all including the part time employees. I paid 80% of the cost of that insurance. 50% chose not to participate and those 50% were classified as uninsured. That seems to be the missing data in all surveys. How many of the uninsured have access to insurance but choose not to take it?

    Instead of telling the they were better off, how about you let them decide for themselves...

    I disagree, the GOP or at least the Conservatives in the GOP have no problem with minorities and would be happy for everyone to get a bigger piece of the pie because the pie isn't a finite product, it keeps growing. Liberals IMO are fighting so hard to keep people dependent on their programs. I will ask the same question asked earlier, are minorities better off today than they were when Obama took office?

    You dodged every single one of my questions, EXACTLY as I thought you would. Should I take that to mean you concede them?

    Allen West said it best and I agree with him. Now are minorities better off today than they were when Obama took office?

    Better taking a reading course, you asked why TX has such a high rate of uninsured and I gave you a reason, when 50% of the employees are offered insurance and CHOOSE not to take it that is a reason that the uninsured number is higher. Nothing changes the mind of a liberal ideologue where personal responsibility doesn't exist

    Oh, by the way many of those children are insured by the SCHPs program and medicaid. Interesting how you ignore that reality

    Not to mention that's a BS argument as to why they should vote GOP... You were worse off under Obama, vote for us.

    Not going to happen. They actually have to do something for the black vote, and appeal to them... say they can do more for them than the Democratic Party. But if they can't get that, they are going to keep struggling with minorities and that's ok by me.
