“Texas has been criticized for having a large number of uninsured,” he said, “but that’s what Texans wanted. They did not want a large government program forcing everyone to purchase insurance.”
Texas wanted “a large number of [medically] uninsured” people in their state.
Why would anyone want that?
Well, it's really simple. Texans believe Obamacare is a handout to blacks and Latinos from a black President. They'd rather see blacks and Latinos go without insurance rather than help all uninsured Texans for two reasons, one, because they've been convinced they're "paying for healthcare" for people too lazy to go buy insurance, and two, because to Texans like Rick Perry, blacks and Latinos are subhuman scum who deserve to die.
Long and the short of it.
