Biden just gave every person in Texas free health insurance
Today we are learning that as a historic polar vortex created power outages for some 4 million Texans & left dozens dead, Biden has given FEMA the authority to provide Medicare for all 254 counties in Texas. https://t.co/tUJVhfwFJ9

Not free ACCESS to health CARE, but actual health care. Great job, Joe.
Hey let’s be happy for them. With so many families ending in the hospital or needing to go, but knowing that they can’t afford one more damn bill. Yay. Tomorrow we will demand that for the rest of us.
F*CK THIS SYSTEM
This is one of the most unbelievable passages I've ever read.
A $16,752 electric bill for a 63-year-old retiree, bankrupting him. Just to survive a storm in the richest country on earth. pic.twitter.com/vxzGwgdYxC

Hey don’t worry Scott, Biden’s gonna send you $1,400 really soon...oh wait you won’t be getting any if you made too much money or had more than $400 just in case you have any type emergency. Never mind.
Oh look... But there is good news for Scott:
After a public outcry from people like Scott Willoughby, whose exorbitant electric bill is soon due, Gov. Greg Abbott said lawmakers should ensure Texans “do not get stuck with skyrocketing energy bills” caused by the storm.
Biden said that every person who gets Covid will not have to pay 1 penny for their bills just like Trump did, but people are still getting lots of bills from hospitals and doctors and respiratory therapists and from the lab or any of the numerous departments that helped keep them alive. One woman got a bill for $2 million. She must have been very sick and in the ICU for months. Some have. Or longer.
I’ll be updating this if I find more info on it or the situation in Texas or other states that are experiencing difficulties with people dying horribly from lack of care from their government. Yeah Ted Cruz got caught going to Mexico with his family, but so what? Biden went to camp David and his staff wanted us to know that he was having a fine time with his grandkids and staying nice and warm in front of a fire. Gawd’s nightgown didn’t anyone think of the optics or was that the POINT of letting people in Texas know that HE was nice and warm while they 1st couldn’t know because they had no internet because they had NO effing power, but by damn it was ballsy.
