The Texas non-solution for Medicaid expansion is dying

The Austin American-Statesman has details. I have no doubt that no bill's gonna get to the House floor before the Thursday deadline.

Some tea partiers will love that. Their "Texas solution" is, of course, to do nothing. Democrats are smart, both politically and otherwise, to avoid this baby with a 10-foot pole, but who knows if a few more would break ranks?

Anyway, in the meantime, smaller, rural hospitals will see taxes for their taxation districts rise again with the ER becoming more and more the substitute for health insurance. But, those voters still won't, or will refuse to, draw the connection with their local representative.
