Please deny South Dakota’s request for waiver. Low wage earners need help to better their lives and putting them in a position that denies them access to health care does not move them toward a better life, it moves them away. Work requirements would likely do little to reduce poverty and would instead put many low-income employed parents at risk of losing benefits.
