    Great, now figure out if people eligible for Medicaid that don't use it are counted as uninsured?

    No, you posted numbers that you have no idea where they came from. Fact, there are millions of Americans who are eligible for insurance who CHOOSE not to participate yet are reported as uninsured. Do you really believe the Federally created Obamacare program is a solution to your problem?

    Uhmm no they were linked to sources.

    The whole population is eligible for insurance if they can pay for it! Your anecdotal whimsies are meaningless.

    My problem? WTH heck are you talking about?

    I'll take that bet... Jeb won't be the next President.

    I was discussing Cruz, a Cuban American which only gringos think is 'close enough' to mexican to pull the Vast majority of the Hispanic vote...

    Cruz is the bigger 'threat' to good governance as he is sticking to the TP radical right position. Cruz is being talked up as a new leader for the GOP, I'll wager a shiny nickle he will be the New Messiah that will lead the GOP to the Promise Land.

    Can't say I've heard much about Rubio of late...

    When Cruz read Green Eggs and Ham aloud, it was the closest he had gotten to a cogent argument in his entire career.

    The irony of Cruz reading a poem about a person with irrational prejudices against something, which are finally dispelled when he experienced it and found out it was good ,went right over his head.

California has three times as many people making California minimum wage and you try living on $8 an hour there. Better tell that to the Fortune 500 businesses moving to TX that we are simply a service economy unless of course you mean the medical profession being service.

    By the way you have yet to prove me wrong on any issue.



    I have traveled all over the country in my business career, moved to TX in 1992 and unlike you, I appreciate what I have here. This was the best move of my life.
    You have been proved wrong that Perry created the most minimum wage jobs! Oh and this dead last in Insurance coverage!

    The sad thing is Romneycare is doing well in Mass and that was the blueprint for Obamacare. Go ahead keep making an ass out of yourself!

    When it comes to Obamacare Harry Reid gets it. When first considered he did everything he could to keep the discussion off the floor and in the back rooms. Now he cuts off Cruz to silence the opposition. While Reid does plenty of dirt dumb things, he's smart enough to know that the less Obamacare is talked about in an official senate function in public, the better for Obamacare.
