I read with interest your editorial ("Obamatrip?" July 7) regarding the trip to the Farnborough air show by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, seven state manufacturers, including four Tulsa firms, and most importantly, Gov. Mary Fallin. You asked why is it OK for the state to accept government money from the Obama administration for the trip when it is not OK to accept money to extend Medicaid coverage to 200,000 uninsured Oklahomans. Good question.
Could it be Fallin is too lazy to come up with a plan? Oklahoma deserves a governor who is proactive rather than being against whatever President Barack Obama proposes. I would like to see what Gov. Fallin comes up with or if she simply takes more trips, avoiding her duties to the citizens of Oklahoma.
