#TXLEGE: Davis, meanwhile, attempting to set up Health Care Rationing

"having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!"
2 Timothy 3:5

Never let a crisis go to waste:

This is actually a couple weeks old (the letter is dated March 20), although we just discovered it this morning.

The problem, of course, is that Davis doesn't propose doing anything to increase the supply of Health Care providers.  She just wants to pour more people (and, one presumes, more money) into the status quo.  In other words, make current challenges worse.

Medicaid already suffers acute shortages.  That's the whole reason why a bunch of left leaning organizations want to scale back (*) scope of practice restrictions.  Yet, Sarah Davis has never lifted a finger on scope of practice (**).

Instead, the medical cartel gets more power.

Bottom Line: Politicians gonna politician, but still....


* - We'd prefer to see scope of practice abolished outright, but the proposals the lege has discussed the past few sessions are nevertheless a gigantic improvement over the status quo.

** - Rumor has it that she's a (very strong) opponent behind the scenes, but to our knowledge she's never said anything publicly.
