Governor Perry: Accept Federal Medicaid Funds

To be delivered to Governor Rick Perry

Petition Statement

Nearly 1 in 4 Texans don't have health insurance, including 1.2 million children.

By rejecting Medicaid expansion funds from the federal government, you are hurting nearly 2-million Texans who would benefit from it.

Please reverse course and accept the federal Medicaid dollars and help Texans in need.
There are currently 23,328 signatures. NEW goal - We need 25,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Last year, Governor Rick Perry announced that he would not accept new federal dollars to expand the state's Medicaid program.

By rejecting these funds, nearly 2-million Texans will be uninsured.

Tell Governor Perry to reverse course and accept federal Medicaid dollars and protect the 2-million Texans that would benefit.
