    Many Texans also don't have auto insurance because I remember I paid outrageous rates for my car during the year I lived in San Antonio

    July 03 report:

    "DALLAS (AP) — The number of uninsured drivers in Texas has dropped more than 38 percent from a year ago, state statistics show, and officials attribute the decline to a program focused on getting those drivers either insured or off the road and a clean-up of the database of the state's licensed drivers.

    Statistics compiled in June indicate 13 percent of motorists, or about 2.6 million Texans, are driving without minimum insurance coverage, which is a violation of state law. One year ago, the state reported that about 22 percent of all drivers, or 4.2 million people, had no insurance."

    It seems that Texas authorities can recognize the value of reducing the number of uninsured drivers BECAUSE THEY DRIVE UP THE COSTS FOR EVERYONE ELSE.

    It's time they understood that rationale for mandating health insurance for all its citizens.
