Three quick things that came to mind as I was driving around today:
- 1. When former state Rep. Arlene Wohlgemuth says there aren’t enough doctors in Texas to support a Medicaid expansion, she must have forgotten one tiny thing: She now works for the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a conservative group that strongly promotes the idea that tort reform laws – which limit the amount of money a patient can sue his or her medical provider for if they cut off the wrong arm – passed in earlier legislative sessions have increased the number of doctors in Texas. Oops.
- 2. This song goes out to my very favorite (sarcasm alert) person still serving under the Dome.
- 3. Finally, it’s after five o’clock in the afternoon and the school down the street (Pearce Middle School) has a full parking lot. Just for those of you who think teachers go home at three o’clock.
