Texas Democrats and Health Care

The 2012 Texas Democratic Party Platform supports health care for all. It supports access to preventative health care, mental health and substance abuse services, family planning, education and services to prevent communicable infections.  

The 2012 Texas Democratic Party Platform supports children's heath insurance.  It states that Texas Democrats:  "support full restoration of the original CHIP program and policies, reinstatement of the simplified application process, aggressive outreach to enroll all eligible children, and a 12 month period of continuous health coverage."

Texas Democrats support improving Medicare, protecting Medicaid and eliminating health care disparities between Americans of different races, genders, incomes or regions.

(So do I.)
