Re: “Arkansas cuts uninsured rate in more than half in wake of Obamacare, leads nation

Most of Arkansas is piss poor rural people of all races whether delta blacks or ozark hillbillies. Little Rock and Pine Bluff add urban poor to the mix. These people cannot and will never afford health care on the level modern medicine now dictates. Whether the state or federal government pays for it is irrelevant. In one manner or another we all will. those few of us who earn income and pay taxes bear these people on our backs.

I wish I could see results from the money we are forced to pay to care for these folks. I want to see them cared for and expect the least most of our society in this nation to be taken care of in a way that sets a high bar at the minimum. The problem as I see it is that we rely on a corrupt and criminally inefficient government to do this on our behalf. They consistently fail at this. That is just plain wrong. Its their purpose to do these things and we fail to hold them accountable.
