Texas Beats National Average In Health Uninsurance

Texas is on the cutting edge of America's decline.

Nearly a third of people in Texas who are of working age do not have health insurance, Baylor University researchers found as they analyzed U.S. Census Bureau data.

Texas is the fastest-growing state, but 31percent of those ages 18 to 64 are uninsured.

The national average is 20.2 percent for that age group, said senior research analysts Debbie McMahon and Wes Hinze of Baylorís Center for Community Research and Development.

Texas belongs with a cluster of states with lower medical insurance rates. Of course Texas represents America's bleak demographic future, the evidence for which can be found at very young ages. Texas and California show where we are going as a nation.

We are going to have to adjust our expectations downward. Delusion funded by taxes and subsidies for the lower performers is another option which Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress are promoting.

If I remember correctly, Texas was 30th something in the ranking for the population with high school diplomas in the USA 20 years ago. It is now 50th.
