The job of state government in Health Care:
1. Make sure that there is sufficient educational capacity to train: doctors, nurses and all the support staff.
2. Make sure there are sufficient facilities, including mobile units for rural areas (the vast majority of Texas is rural), for routine health care.
3. Make sure sufficient health care personnel are available to serve everybody in the state.
These services are aided by everyone having health care, including the choice of a strong, public option.
