    State of Hidalgo County, Texas ( McAllen, Pharr, Mission, Edinburg). We are livinga terrible situation in this Texas County, one of the poorest counties in the USA.

    Our elected government officials have sold us to the BORDER HEALTH PAC , which is a group of very rich hospitals & doctors. Our senator, Juan Jose "Chuy" Hinojosa has sold our future & our children's.

    This is the way American Democracy works. These elected officials have been paid off to pass a County Proposition 1 ;so taxpayers will be taxed 75 cents on each $100. house value, which makes $ 750. on a $ 100,000. On top of what we already pay, which is a lot. $ 3,000. on a $ 100,000.

    This money as Chuy Hinojosa calls it " An Investment", which is not will be: a) to pay for indigents who do not want or have health care and b) 2 years for doctors schooling. Doctors who, here in US make millions of dollars.

    Our property taxes as they are now, are already drowning us in debt. A lot of people are loosing their houses due to high property taxes.




    You better stay in Yucatan , where taxes and government "RATS" are really cheaper !

    Please, do not cry for us ! Maria Kanto from Merida, Yucatan
