Re: “Whoops: Dramatic cost increase and change in scope for the I-30 concrete gulch in Little Rock UPDATE

Might I mention that I-49 still lacks a bridge of any size over the Arkansas River? And that the people of western Arkansas would welcome an Interstate bridge.

Re: “Obamacare's ruin: Where are the boastful press releases from Arkansas Republicans?

"Now, it is time for Congress to increase options, lower costs and protect those with pre-existing conditions."

Republicans have controlled Congress for 8 years. What has stopped them from doing these wonderful things?

Re: “Arkansas Medicaid rule described as 'disastrous'

The primary criteria for judging the success of the Medicaid program (to include Medicaid expansion) should be does it improve the health of recipients.

Our governor and the Republican party has decided that the program should be judged by how many people can be denied healthcare.

Re: “Blake announces voter reform legislation

No complaints about the proposed bill but Arkansas does need to address the signature issue.

I know that my 1972 registration signature bears no resemblance to my 2018 signature. And the signature I write on the polling place tablet using my finger looks like a 3 year old's finger painting.

Poll workers are suppose to check the signatures but I know that the workers at my polling place do not attempt to to that.

My 90+ year old parents voted absentee. Their current signatures are nothing like what is on file with the county clerk.

Re: “Race, poverty and school quality: More facts behind the school grades

This demonstrates why i believe that schools should be graded primarily on how well the subsidized lunch program children in each school perform. The current system rewards schools based on how many middle class/upper middle kids are enrolled in the school.
