Re: “Boozman gets grilled on tax vote

Boozman is inaccurate when he claims the ACA caused premiums to inflate. He conveniently forgets that numerous GOP controlled states, such as TX, with its huge population, refused to set up state exchanges and disallowed the advertising by the state for people to sign up for the ACA.

For the ACA to reduce upward pressures on healthcare costs, the US needed to increase the number of people insured nationwide. That would have stabilized insurance markets. Those who signed up for the ACA and who had not been covered before were able to access preventive care and that saved lives and medical care costs.

Re: “Tom Cotton meets the resistance

Pleased that Tom Cotton met with you all, and you are great Americans for traveling to D.C. and meeting with Cotton, but we'll see if he's willing to listen more to constituents or more to #MitchMcConnell and #KochBros with whom Cotton met long before his campaign and with whom he continues to meet.

If Cotton pays attention to the terrible burden weighing on our economy, our productivity, and the quality of life in America, by a crippled, underfunded Medicaid, he will realize the investment in healthcare far exceeds its costs generationally.

We need to fix what isn't working well in the ACA, such as the exchanges, which must be run by an adequately funded federal government outreach to all Americans, in every state, and the government must be empowered to negotiate better pharmaceutical prices. If everyone is covered equally, nationwide, so that an employee's access to healthcare is not tied to an employer, or a health condition or an age, it will free workers to become small business entrepreneurs, if they want, or move to any state they want.

A government run healthcare will, like interstate highways, should boost interstate commerce because companies and people will be able to focus, not on the ability to access healthcare, but on what ignites their imaginations.

Will fully funded federal healthcare be costly? Isn't requiring the uninsured to seek emergency medical care an economic drag? It certainly is.

People who think we can't afford national healthcare are willfully ignorant of the terrible costs to the uninsured, their families, their communities, their states and our nation under the current patchwork of healthcare we have today.

Re: “Arkies again arrested protesting health legislation

Shame on Boozman for refusing to meet with Arkansans. Boozman seems to think lawmaking works best for him and his master, Mitch McConnell, if it's done behind closed and locked doors. Seems Boozman thinks our government belongs to him and his ilk and not to the people he lied to when he campaigned and said he would represent Arkansans.

This video and the Arkansans who tried to see Boozman exposes his charade.
