  • WORK OR SUFFER: Arkansas begins a figurative paddling program for those covered by the private option Medicaid expansion provided by Obamacare.
Here's the Sunday open line. With it, an image of a notice just received by someone covered by Arkansas Works, the Medicaid expansion program to which 300,000 people in Arkansas owe Barack Obama a debt of gratitude. Now Gov. Asa Hutchinson is making sure they work for general welfare (though most of them already do or are otherwise unable.)

The deep state will be watching, slackers. Work or no medical treatment for you. (Does anybody else think those last repetitive sentiments on entitlements remind you of  a nasty finger-wagging teacher?) I got this from someone who works, by the way, though sometimes jobs sufficient to meet the minimum monthly requirement are  in short supply.

But be of good cheer, fat cats. Corporate welfare NEVER runs dry in the Land of Opportunity. Nor legislative per diem nor matter how little or dishonestly a legislator toils.

A passing thought: Couldn't the state offer a Greenbrier option? If you can't get a job, couldn't you take some licks with a wooden paddle to be entitled to continue your insurance coverage?
