Surprises abound this morning.
 
The rising cost of health insurance has meant roughly 10 percent less worker enrollment in Texas over the last decade.
 
Texas has the highest rate of uninsured workers under the age of 65 in the country. States including Texas, more than half of which are suing to invalidate the Obama health law, are dragging their feet instituting health care exchanges.
 
Texas is also one of a handful of states to reduce Medicaid payments to hospitals.
