Letters: No respect for the poor

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.”

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