Texas Isn’t Targeting The Vulnerable In Medicaid; It’s Protecting Them
Here’s a story you may not have heard: Texas is protecting health care for the truly vulnerable.
If that doesn’t sound familiar, it’s because state and national commentators are saying the opposite. Since April, Texas has removed more than 600,000 people from Medicaid rolls. The way the story goes, the state is deliberately kicking off needy people, depriving them of the health care they desperately need and can’t afford anywhere else.
That story is false.
