The Beebe channel: speech to joint session

Posted By on Tue, Jan 15, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Gov. Mike Beebe addresses the House and Senate at a joint session this morning.

We can all get along, he'll likely say. And we as a people can get along a lot better if we expand Medicaid to working poor and take the rest of the sales tax off groceries.

I won't argue with that. Some, maybe a lot, in the new Republican majority, will. Their view: Let poor folks get by the best they can. They'll always be with us. And we'd all be a lot better off if we could give the wealthy a huge tax break. See, they'll trickle on us all if only we would.

CORRECTION: Though the joint session convenes at 10 a.m., the governor probably won't speak until around 10:30 a.m.
