  1. The ways you can better inform Oklahomans is by educating about the actual issues, and how Oklahomans are being systematically blocked from recognizing or realizing what the state is doing to their own vs. the Federal Government. Need to have forums that explain the truth especially about Medicaid Expansion, affordable quality healthcare, and access for all Oklahomans. It’s imperative that Oklahomans become knowledgeable about the issues that directly affect them, versus the propaganda that places blame on the wrong entities.

  2. We, the good people of Oklahoma, do not treat our loved ones, friends, neighbors or fellow citizens the way many of our elected officials (through their policy choices) in the state legislature now treat us. We can do better. We must. The OK Policy Group will help us get there.
