Dallas Area Interfaith Challenges Texas Governor to ‘Opt-In’

"Gov. Rick Perry might have been surprised to hear his name invoked repeatedly during a recent gathering at Christ's Foundry United Methodist Mission. But the rollicking crowd that filled the northwest Dallas church was not praising the governor's leadership or even praying for his soul.

Nearly 300 people crowded into the church to launch a petition drive challenging Perry's decision to opt out of a Medicaid expansion under President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. 'We're organizing teams to teach people about Medicaid, get them to sign petitions and do neighborhood walks,' said Mike Rosen of Dallas Area Interfaith."
