Texas particularly needs national health care reform: 6.1 million Texans have no health insurance, including 1 in 3 working-age adults and 1 in 5 children. Narrowing the scope of pending legislation to address only health insurance reform wonâ€™t help Texas because so many Texans cannot afford health insurance. If Congress abandons two of the key provisions of reformâ€"help with premiums and out-of-pocket costs for low-to-moderate income Texans and Medicaid expansion for working poor adultsâ€"Texas will see very little reduction in uninsured citizens.
