Kerry Campaigns for Kids in Austin

Kerry Campaigns for Kids in Austin

Former Presidential candidate John Kerry brought a different campaign to Austin Saturday, a campaign to get health coverage for more american children. The Massachusetts senator, speaking at the U-T Recreation Center, declared that 11-million children are uninsured, 1.4 million of them in Texas, ranking the state as second worst, behind California. Kerry is proposing legislation for the federal government to take over medicaid responsibilities from states. Surveys show that 88% of uninsured children in Texas have at least one working parent. Hidalgo and El Paso counties rank as having the most uninsured children in Texas.

You obviously haven't been paying attention--there are plenty of comments on our main blog where we hold the discussion. We just continue to mirror information here as many people have this site book marked, and it often comes up in search engines.
