Re “The governor is wrong: Bentley refuses to see what data show about Medicaid expansion” (Editorial, Oct. 4):

Our politicians are elected by the majority after stating their positions on the issues, so how can the governor be wrong when the majority of his constituents agree with his position?

Politicians are elected to do the will of the “people,” and as long as any politician continues to do that, how can they be “wrong”? It’s easy to quote statistics about percentages of races that are poor in our state. But don’t leave out the stats that indicate why they continue to carry the indigent label, and that number continues to grow rapidly.

Seventy-three percent of a certain group of people have their children out of wedlock, with no fathers to support them, perpetuating the poverty level and putting the burden on the taxpayer.
