Liberal conspiracy makes Texas bottom of barrel

Editor, the Advocate:
I smell a Democratic liberal conspiracy. Texas has a Republican governor. Texas is leaning right (thank God). Texas has a pretty good economy. But Texas is at the bottom of the barrel for providing health care for its population. How can this be?
The most famous medical center in the world is in Houston - M.D. Anderson Cancer Hospital. Then there are Baylor College of Medicine, in Houston; Driscoll Children's Hospital, in Corpus Christi; and Methodist Hospital, in Houston. The famous heart doctor, Michael DeBakey, worked where? Texas!
I could go on and on. The whole purpose of saying that Texas is at the bottom of the barrel is just political garbage to show that a state that has Republicans in the majority does not care for its people (legal or illegal).
I'll take the bottom of the barrel health care here in Texas, and you can keep your Obamacare and the health care states of Minnesota and Massachusetts.
Don't mess with the Lone Star State.
