Letters: No respect for the poor

AnchorageNovember 17, 2013 

Sean Parnell chooses not to expand Medicaid and his slogan is “Choose Respect.” There is a name for that and it's called hypocrisy. In actuality, his slogan should be “Don’t Respect the Poor.”

hypocrisy |hi’päkrise| noun ( pl. hypocrisies )

the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.
