With the daunting budget cycle ahead of us everyone is looking for solutions to cut spending while maintaining necessary programs. Empower Texans has been polling to see what Texans want. One message is clear.

Rather than raise taxes to meet demand for Medicaid, 66 percent of voters share the view that the program is not sustainable, and we need to reform Medicaid, not raise taxes.”

Texas voters want Medicaid reform.
