Might Nate Bell be onto something?

His picture is from the Monday morning meeting of the "Health Reform" Legislative Task Force. This is the group endeavoring to keep Obamacare dollars flowing into Arkansas while appearing to not support Obamacare. It also seeks to cut outlays in Medicaid (a project that has implications for both instiutional and community-based providers of services to the elderly and infirm.)

Speaking of that task force: A consultant has increased the figure on the windfall of money the state is going to get from going along with the Obamacare Medicaid expansion — an additional $300 million or so over four years. Again: This is why Gov. Asa Hutchinson can't quit the private option. If he can help it.
