Health care: Come one and all

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 3:02 PM

U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder's scheduled talk on health care at noon this coming Tuesday has been moved from the Clinton School of Public Service to the Wally Allen Ballroom of the Statehouse Convention Center. Plenty of room for pros, cons, 'baggers, etc.

For the record: Arkansas law prohibits taking a concealed weapon into a college or university event except for an "authorized firearms related activity." The talk is part of the Clinton School's continuing lunchtime lecture series.

ALSO: Tuesday is a good day for public speakers in Arkansas. Morris Dees, founder and chief trial counsel of the hate-fighting Southern Poverty Law Center, will speak at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville's Law School at 9 a.m. Tuesday. The event is open to the public.

ALSO ALSO: Rep. Steve Harrelson is Twittering U.S. Rep. Mike Ross' town hall in Texarkana. 60-80 people. No bloodshed. Ross quoted as saying he doesn't like government much either. Except, of course, when it is flying him and his wife around the world in a ritzy private jet for New Year's Eve partying. Or when it's protecting the pharmaceutical business that made his family quite well off. Or when it's oppressing unpopular groups of people.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
