Dallas Morning News, October 8, 2009

Healthcare in Texas ranks among the worst in the nation, dragged down by large numbers of uninsured and by the nation's most porous safety net, according to a scorecard and analysis released by the Commonwealth Fund. Texas was ranked last in access to healthcare, and in equity—a measure of how minorities and low-income patients fared in the state's medical system.
