Make a living by the sweat of our brow

Why do we want to expand Medicaid in Oklahoma by 175,000 people? Do we want to have more unemployed than employed? Why not encourage higher education, more employment and building one's self-esteem instead of growing welfare rolls? What's happened to the days of giving a day's labor in return for a day's pay? True, people with disabilities should have assistance, but where do we draw the line and allow the able-bodied to make their own way? With employment, the employer offers each employee health insurance.
