Reporting by The Salt Lake Tribune suggests that a large majority of the Utah Legislature views the Book of Mormon as scripture. In that book, King Mosiah states “make it your law — to do your business by the voice of the people.” (Mosiah 29:26) The “voice of the people” was clearly disregarded, thwarted and contravened when Utah’s ruling elites degraded and deformed the Medicaid expansion mandated by Proposition 3.

The majority of Utahns, who supported Proposition 3, can now see what Utah's poor have always understood: Utah's political elite interpret their scriptures very figuratively.
