At a Dallas press conference, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison blamed illegal immigrants for making Texas the national leader in uninsured residents. But hospital officials and state statistics don't back her up. KERA's Bill Zeeble has more.
At the trauma center in Dallas' Parkland Hospital, Senator Hutchison was joined by local hospital executives in denouncing President Obama's health care reform plans before Congress.
Texas leads the nation in the number of uninsured. When asked how she would solve that problem, Senator Hutchison blamed illegal immigrants.
Hutchison: We have the highest number of uninsured mostly because of the illegal immigrant population.
