As Medicaid Expansion Looms, Remember the Alamo

|

Remember the Alamo” is a mantra all Texans know well. Others should learn it and embrace it.

More than a historic phrase, those words have come to serve as a reminder and symbol of the sacred American duty to fight relentlessly, at all costs, for what is right. Texans do not cower in the face of what might seem to others to be overwhelming odds, because that type of fear is simply not a part of their heritage.

Today, Texas finds itself under attack again. This time the threat comes not from a force led by General Santa Anna, but rather from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the victims aren’t towering figures such as Davy Crockett, but rather the elderly, low-income children, and people with disabilities.
