Open line: State's Obamacare planning advances

Posted By on Tue, May 28, 2013 at 4:58 PM

The line is open. Final thoughts:

* MORE MONEY FOR OBAMACARE: A legislative committee voted 23-9 today to continue accepting federal money to plan for implementation of federal health care expansion. The usual Republicans, including gubernatorial candidate Rep. Debra Hobbs, opposed the expenditure. But the leading vanguard of Republicans who threw in with Obamacare gave the proposal the margin necessary for passage. If Republican voters — heck, the majority of all Arkansas voters, if you believe Tom Cotton and the Arkansas Republican Party — hate Obamacare as badly as they say, shouldn't this mean Debra Hobbs will be the Republican nominee and next governor of Arkansas? Presumed front-running Republican Asa Hutchinson has been kind of mushy on the subject.
