He doesn't give a damn.


Among the findings:

1 Texas was worst of all states in caring for breast cancer patients under 70 and in home health-care for patients with respiratory problems, urinary incontinence and chronic pain.

1 Texas' highest scores came in nursing home care, cancer and maternal and child health care. The first two were rated average, maternal and child health care slightly above average.

1 Texas ranked above the national average in the quality of care provided to Hispanics and blacks, compared to care provided to whites.

Minnesota was followed by Wisconsin, Maine, Massachusetts and Iowa atop the report card. West Virginia, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico finished above Texas at the bottom.

"This report card shows that insured or not, Texans generally aren't getting the quality care they should," said state Rep. Garnet Coleman, D-Houston, a longtime member of the House public health committee and critic of the state's limited Medicaid program. "It shows what we know - that we're at the bottom."
