Health care blockade fails again

Posted By on Thu, Mar 24, 2011 at 11:09 AM

Death Star Jason Rapert, the insurance salesman/revivalist who is living up to the standard set by the previous Bigelow senator Bob Johnson, failed in Joint Budget today to block implementation of health care reform legislation. Roby Brock's report suggests Rapert, noisy though he is, is marginal even among his own. Federal supremacy continues to be honored in Arkansas for at least one more day.

So much for the Rapert "hold" on a state agency budget. He had once vowed to keep the hold on until they came around to his way of thinking.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
