    Texas Medical Center.  Just about every doctor and hospital within and without the Center surely would want to expand Medicaid. Even Republican officials in Houston say it is ridiculous to turn it down.  Harris County Judge Ed Emmett (R) said to take it and call it something else.  Kind of like what Kentucky did.  

    Don't be surprised if you hear a thing or two about Lone Star Care within the next few months.  Rick Perry will say Texas worked around Obamacare and did its own thing, while taking federally expanded medicaid funds.  Wendy Davis should go after Greg Abbott when this happens.
