Uninsured Children in Texas

While a majority of Americans think that the number of uninsured children is rising, it actually continues to decline. Medicaid and CHIP are working, and the uninsured rate will fall even faster with full implementation of the ACA. But there are still far too many uninsured children, especially in the South, and our leadership needs to keep working hard on fixing this. Texas saw the largest drop of uninsured kids from 2010 to 2012, but still has more than any other state. Medicaid expansion would have a direct, positive impact on kids in Texas.
