Suffer the children: Arkansas case goes national

Posted By on Thu, Aug 18, 2016 at 7:43 AM


Here's the Washington Post article
some have noted about a case of child abuse in Hot Springs. Headline:

A 4-year-old found beaten and abused said she thought her name was ‘Idiot,’ according to police
Extensive reporting only makes it worse. The child was one of six children living with their mother and her boyfriend. They now are in the care of the state or their father.

Some 300 comments on the article include shots at the state of origin, including the governor's effort to deprive Planned Parenthood of Medicaid support of family planning services.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
