Expansion of Medicaid is one way we, as individuals and as a body politic, respect the sanctity of human life by making sure all God's children get the medical care they need. Appropriate medical care makes an individual stronger and in doing so, makes America stronger as a whole. Stronger, healthier people learn more, work harder, are better able to take care of their own children and lead more productive lives.
It is our history of supporting our people that makes America that shining city on the hill that we are all proud to be a part of. We can all respect a government that embodies the principles laid out in our Constitution, that called for us to 'support the General Welfare.' And when we each give a little to help those with less, we fulfill the creed taught to us in Sunday schools, to take care of the less fortunate.
