Re: “State Rep. Micah Neal pleads guilty to taking kickbacks from government grants

@MyNameIsEarl. You are correct. At least according to Arkansas state election law. But, there was little regard for that in his case, anyways, so who knows?

Re: “The Arkansas Medicaid mess: the bureaucratic nightmare to come for DHS

DHS IS a bureaucratic nightmare. It was a nightmare when I started working there, and it's only gotten worse. If Asa really cared about making lasting improvements, he'd actually make an earnest effort at boosting morale, increasing employee retention, and fixing the idiotic Catch 22s that riddle the policies DHS caseworkers encounter day in, day out. I could write a book. But instead it's just this showmanship without any substance.

Re: “Gov. Asa Hutchinson: DHS is caught up on Medicaid eligibility verification, process to resume (including cancellations)

As someone who left DHS last Friday, I find this claim by Hutchinson suspicious. There's no way they rectified this so quickly. For numerous Medicaid programs, there have been backlogs and processing timeframes went out the door long ago. I find it shocking that Hutchinson was able to find the manpower and the technical aptitude necessary to commandeer such a turnaround of a process that has been an absolute administrative nightmare from its inception.

Re: “Jon Woods: Poster boy for term limits

Term limits are a way for the lazy and the stupid to exert some fictitious influence over the cogs of governance. They do nothing other than promote short-term thinking, grandstanding plays of self-importance by unseasoned legislators, and an asenine electoral imperative for officials who should be focusing on policy-making rather than legacy-leaving. Pay attention, and don't continue to shoot society in the foot with idiotic "checks" like term limits. I'd rather have somebody who knows what they're doing rather than some fresh terd dressed in a fancy suit who will just leave a stink and then leave.
