26 rural hospitals have closed in recent years across Texas. This is unacceptable for the richest country on Earth. Texans deserve better.
We demand our state and federal leaders do all that they can to protect all rural hospitals and clinics across the state and reopen all those that have closed. Expanding Medicaid is a good first step to help save rural hospitals, so we DEMAND our state leaders expand Medicaid ASAP and do whatever else it takes to save our rural healthcare.
Many in Lampasas suffered when the power grid failed during the disastrous winter storm of 2021. Instead of getting to work and fixing the grid, Texas state leaders play the blame game and get NOTHING DONE. Powerplants are still not required to winterize their equipment, there's still little to no transparency in ERCOT/PUC, and fundamentally nothing has changed.
Let's send a clear message to our state leaders: FIX THE DAMN GRID!
