Healthcare is one of Senator Garcia’s top priorities. Texas is currently number one in the nation for uninsured citizens and that is felt disproportionately in Latino communities. Improving access to health care is vital to the wellbeing of our citizens.
Senator Garcia supported the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, which made healthcare accessible to all Americans, and supports its full implementation in Texas.
Senator Garcia believes that it was irresponsible to reject Medicaid expansion in Texas, leaving millions – often the poorest of the poor – without healthcare coverage. She will continue to push for a solution to close this coverage gap
