Washington, DC, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Rep. Ruben Hinojosa, D-Texas, delivering the weekly Democratic Hispanic radio address Saturday, said Hispanics face a health care crisis with 13 million Hispanics without health insurance.
"And, as if this were not enough, an additional 1.3 million people fell out of the middle class and into poverty last year, with paychecks flat and household income down," said Hinojosa. "While annual average incomes remained flat, incomes for Hispanics dropped by 2.6 percent, the only group whose incomes fell last year."
He added: "Republicans have clearly failed to improve our economy for middle class families. Instead, Republicans have fought to give irresponsible tax breaks to those who need them least, and they have used taxpayer money to create new incentives that ship those taxpayers' jobs overseas."
