A Memorial Day message on Medicaid

Posted By on Mon, May 29, 2017 at 4:11 PM

Organizations that support continuation of the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare note that roughly 1.75 million veterans rely on Medicaid for health coverage and would be imperiled by cuts in the program.

The number grew exponentially thanks to Obamacare, an 80 percent increase according to Families USA from 2013 to 2015. Those covered included 27,000 Arkansas veterans. Remember our Arkansas House delegation this Memorial Day for their vote to slash the program. They want to roll back the 80 percent increase in the number of veterans covered.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
