  • LET'S TALK ABOUT IRAN: Just don't bother asking Tom Cotton about health care. That's top secret.
You do know that 13 U.S. Senators are deciding in secret national health care policy and intend to limit debate to 10 hours with little advance notice?

You do know that U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton is one of the 13?

You may not know this because national media haven't considered the secret planning front-page news, though the well-being of tens of millions of people (their very lives in some cases) hangs in the balance.

Remember this disappearing act the next time Tom Cotton runs over somebody to get in front of a national TV camera to posture on something or another. Ask him why he won't talk about something that has an immediate and direct impact on people in Arkansas.

PS: Some people have taken notice. From release:

Health Care for America Now, Arkansas Community Organizations and other organizations are sponsoring a Day of Action to defend Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act this coming Wednesday, June 21 at Noon in front of the Victory Building at 1401 W. Capitol in Little Rock. The rally will feature speakers from the communities impacted by cuts to Medicaid and the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Participants of the rally will turn in hundreds of postcards to Senators Cotton and Boozman urging them to oppose legislation that ends the Medicaid expansion, cuts and restructures Medicaid, and takes away health coverage from millions of people.
