Rick Perry Seeks Obamacare Funding For Texans
« on: August 21, 2013, 09:14:39 AM »
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), a longstanding Obamacare critic, is negotiating a $100 million health care deal with the Obama administration, Politico reported on Tuesday.

The Community First Choice Program, aimed at improving the quality of health services for the elderly and disabled, was approved by the Texas legislature earlier this year. Perry health aides are now looking to the Obama administration for funding.

Texas may claim it was implementing a program for the disabled without the costs of Obamacare. Without evaluation of their program, we cannot be sure of the quality. What is well known is that Texas ranks very low among providers of health care and other social programs. We'll believe what they say when impartial information is available.
