Your Sept. 30 editorial, "Generating jobs will help Hoosier families," citing the plight of Hoosier girls, listed the poverty, lack of education, health issues, sexuality, and drug use rampant in Indiana, as well as solutions.
I don't always agree with Times' editorials, but they are informative. Failing to mention the efforts of Indiana state and federal officials addressing these issues was wrong.
Gov. Mike Pence stepped up by refusing Medicaid to 300,000 Hoosiers seeking preventive care. He announced they can wait until they are sick, pregnant or addicted and go to an emergency room.
This restored my faith in him after he apologized for a previous comment comparing that devil Obamacare with the 9/11 attack. Perhaps he felt Treasurer Richard Mourdock needed a talking point.
Federal Hoosier Republican officials have done what they could by attempting to cut the food stamp program drastically. There are just too many poor people to feed them all.
