Why Texas Is the Worst Place for Ebola to Strike First

Wendell Potter, Deadly Spin, joins Thom Hartmann. Of all the places for Ebola to strike first in America - Texas has got to be the worst. That's because the Lone Star State is a case study in everything that goes wrong when Republicans get to make decisions about public health. For starters - it's got the highest uninsured rate in the nation. Roughly one quarter of its adult population has zero - I repeat, zero - health insurance. And to make matters worse - that number probably isn't going to change anytime soon because Texas Governor Rick Perry has refused to expand Medicaid under Obamacare - trapping thousands in what's called the Red State donut hole. Texas also has no paid sick leave law - which means that if the guy cooking your burger just happens to come into contact with a deadly disease like - I don't know - Ebola - he can't take time off to go see the doctor without having to worry about losing his job. Whatever way you look at it - Texas is a public health disaster. So will it be able to handle Ebola?

Because of this - Ohio residents won’t get to take advantage of a week-long early voting period called the Golden Week - where they can both register to vote and actually vote on the same day. This is a huge victory for Republican voter suppression efforts.
