Dallas-based reporter Wade Goodwin tells the clear, compelling and heart-breaking story of Texas politicians blocking billions of dollars in healthcare and economic development. Goodwin’s story uses Dallas’ Parkland Hospital as an example of the kind of damage County Hospitals are suffering, and it mirrors experiences in Houston where hardworking and committed Texans are trying to help, despite State leaders blocking billions in funding.
Invest six minutes today listening to this story (below), which quotes the Texas Association of Business and economic leaders. Then you decide: should Texas expand Medicaid, and bring billions of its own citizens’ tax dollars back to the state?
Houston Chronicle business columnist Chris Tomlinson picked up Goodwyn’s story and amplified it here: Stubborn Politicians Costing Texas Billions.
