    If you have some grand point to make.
    I have looked it up, Harris and Montgomery Counties of TX spent over 600,000 on uninsured healthcare expense and that was funded by the taxpayers of the state of TX not the Federal Taxpayers thus making healthcare a state issue

    LOL, Communities all over the country are responsible for civic duties. Seems you don't really understand that concept. This is all about Federal Control over a state issue which is normally the case and one you ignore.

    Are you saying absolutely no federal funding was involved?

    Yep, that is what I am saying, all right out of the local budgets. Why is it federal responsibility to fund state issues and problems? Since the Federal Govt. hasn't secured the border they should be billed as most of that cost was illegal alien healthcare

    Again, both. Depending on circumstance and program involved and method, either or both. Also, we pay with our insurance premium and hospital costs. So, in many different ways, everyone pays. for the uninsured.

    If they are getting medicare or medicaid which I'm pretty sure they are federal funding is involved. Medicaid is jointly funded by both the federal government and the state.

    You don't pay for mine, but both of us pay for the uninsured whether we have health care reform or not. And I have ignored nothing.

    Again, why do you want the Federal Tax payer to pay for state and local issues?

    Not sure I care either way. I only care that reform gets done, and believe a universal payer will do a beter job. that our peicemeal efforts.

    BTW, it isn't just a local issue. Factually, you're incorrect. This is a national problem, effecting all fifty states.
