LETTER: Do good, expand Medicaid in SD

To the Editor:

Commandment No. 11: "Today we also have to say 'thou shalt not' to an economy of exclusion and inequality," Pope Francis.

Our Catholic leader knows the signs of the times and sees the writing on the wall. Actions of inclusion and exclusion have grave consequences. So while there's time, do something for the citizens of South Dakota who don't have equal access to health care. It's a matter of life and death: 26,000 Americans die for lack of health insurance annually. Gov. Dennis Daugaard has said he wants the support of the Legislature. Give him the chance and opportunity to do great good. Expand Medicaid.
