Governor surrendered office to become full-time politician

By rejecting federal funds to set up a health exchange, refusing to expand medical coverage to more than 200,000 working Oklahomans and trying to give insurance companies a pass on providing coverage to newborns, Gov. Mary Fallin shows she has surrendered her office in order to become a full-time politician. Succumbing to the money that brings power in politics and trying to preserve her prestige among behind-the-scene Republican operators, she's become self-serving rather than attending to the well-being of our citizens.
