LETTER: Expand Medicaid under Obamacare

To the Editor:

How in good conscience can we leave thousands of South Dakota people without insurance? This is an issue that we should not play politics with. One would tend to think we have little concern for the health care interests of these people if we do not expand Medicaid under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

This should be a high priority item. There is no cost to the state the first year of implementation. If we are really concerned, we will find a way to afford the partial cost in future years.
