Everybody's talking about House Speaker Davy Carter's chat with Roby Brock.
On the one hand, it's unremarkable. He acknowledges that expansion of Medicaid might make economic sense for Arkansas. Co-pays and drug testing won't solve the budget, he also acknowledges. But he IS a Republican, so even with caveats about future costs in the great by-and-by these remarks count as remarkable. The Medicaid discussion comes about at the 6:30 mark.
At the end, Carter talks about his own political future. He again says, in response to a question about whether he'd make a statewide race, such as for governor, he said he was at a "crossroads," but would decide his future after the session.
Talking like he talked earlier is no way to make friends in a Republican primary, however.

Yes, there is a strong link between David Barton and Bradbury. Bradbury wrote fiction.
