Texas was given a "D" grade by the Corporation for Enterprise Development for how families are doing in the economic turndown. CFED notes Texas is trailing behind the rest of the country in health care resources, education (our teachers rank 48th in salary compensation), and asset-building policies and outcomes. Texas has more children uninsured than any other state: a whopping 1,526,180; and more than 4 million uninsured adults. And Texas emits more pollutants into the air than any other state. Voters need to know these facts when casting ballots in the primaries and in the fall elections. Voting has consequences.
