  • JOSH MILLER: Still battling against Medicaid expansion.
State Rep. Josh Miler, who famously has drawn millions in Medicaid and other public assistance on account of a disability from a drunk driving car wreck but who has opposed the private option expansion of Medicaid, failed again in committee today with a bill to repeal the private option. The chair ruled it failed on a voice vote and no roll call was requested.

Does the dead-end faction in the Arkansas legislature, which had earlier lost another repeal vote, plan to emulate the U.S. Congress with dozens of meaningless show votes on Obamacare?

It is at least a more substantive discussion that bills to protect discrimination against gay people or to prevent women from full access to medical care.
