  • Tawana Cadien. Statement by Tawana W. Cadien, Candidate for U.S. Congress District 10 -- Texas Americans and the Affordable Care Act. 10 July 2012. "When congressional representatives including my opponent, Michael McCaul, District 10-TX were elected two years ago, he and his fellow House Republicans said that they would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. That did not happen. Now they say, put me back in office and I really will repeal and replace the Act. But they have not told us what they would replace it with. What are they offering, what's the alternative, why the mystery? [¦] Let's face reality. Right here in Texas, hospitals are closing, costs are going up, and 25% of Texans are currently uninsured. A major reason for that is when people are treated who have no insurance, someone has to pay. The Affordable Care Act addresses that. It is a CONSTITUTIONAL law that provides coverage to many that does not currently exist." (votesmart.org)
