Congratulations for being elected governor. I am writing to you in hopes that you are willing to listen to a point of view that conflicts with with your own. I believe that you may be assuming too much based on your election as governor. Do you really think that those who voted for you were enthusiastic about every policy you espoused during the campaign? I think it is possible that many who opposed same sex marriage may have voted for you based solely on your position on the issue. Many Medicaid recipients who will be impacted by your plan to roll back Medicaid expansion may well have voted for you based on their dislike for the President and their dislike for gays. You should at least be astute enough to test public opinion on the Medicaid issue. You may find that once the public understands that their friends and family are going to be impacted, your presumed mandate on the issue will evaporate.
