Letters to the Editor D.W. Tiffee
Fallin’s $106 million-a-year tax cut proposal effectively precludes
Oklahoma from spending a net $50 million annually to insure 200,000
Oklahomans under Obamacare, a coldblooded death sentence for thousands
who will suffer and die from treatable medical conditions. The pro-life
crowd’s road to prosperity is paved with human bones.
Labor Commissioner Mark Costello’s argument against the minimum wage (Commentary, "OKC benefits from market cages,” March 26, Oklahoma Gazette) rests
on a false premise. We do not have a free market for labor. The wages
of low income workers are not “market wages.” Our economy is tightly
regulated to favor capital over labor and to suppress wages.
