Report: Almost Half a Million Texans Applied for Healthcare under ObamaCare


But, according to their governor Rick Perry and Canadian born senator Ted Cruz, Texans don’t want healthcare, right?


New numbers on ACA enrollment are out, and nearly half a million Texans have applied for coverage through the federal exchange. The latest numbers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show us that:

457,382 total Texans who applied for coverage through completed applications
390,658 Texans have been found eligible to enroll in a marketplace plan
Over 47,000 have been found eligible to enroll in the state’s existing Medicaid or CHIP plans
Ed Espinoza, Executive Director of Progress Texas, released the following statement:

Twelve weeks of ACA has done more to help Texans without health care than Rick Perry has done in twelve years as Governor.

I’m just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
