WHEREAS the lack of health insurance coverage for many Texans who are employed but not offered adequate health coverage increases health care costs for all Texas residents; and

WHEREAS large companies such as Wal-Mart make huge profits at the expense of their employees by not providing adequate health benefits; be it therefore

RESOLVED, that this precinct urges the Texas Democratic Party to support a State law:
That requires organizations with more than fifty employees within the State of Texas to spend at least 8 percent of their payroll on health benefits or put the equivalent amount of money directly into the Texas State's health program for the poor.
