Missouri's seal

The state seal includes grizzly bears and the state motto "Salus populi suprema lex esto" (Let the welfare of the people be the supreme law).

Regarding "Missouri lawmakers OK $35B budget without Medicaid expansion" (May 7): Missouri lawmakers should probably ditch the current state motto, "Let the welfare of the people be the supreme law," and change it to: "We keep ‘em poor, sick and voiceless."
