Re: “Democrats fault Hutchinson's Medicaid moves

Republicans just can't stand to "give" the poor anything, can they? No. They must have "skin in the game" as the governor says. In other words, in addition to the poor struggling to afford the most basic of necessities, Asa wants to add a choice between food and a $25 doctor office co-pay, and who knows how much else for a prescription. And that's after you pay your monthly policy premium, bc the feds SUBSIDIZE premiums - NOT fully cover.

And since we don't know where the Trumpster fire is going to end up regarding ACA changes - It's a very real possibility that carrying insurance will still be mandatory or face a fine. Just ONCE, could you do the math and imagine how far a poverty line income will go? Do you think those 60K people you're kicking off Medicaid are living a cush life? In the back of my mind, I have this sneaking suspicion that you think these 60K are lazy people - dregs of society - not of your skin color, that you just can't stand giving a nickel to in order to improve their quality of life. Poor Lives Matter, governor.

Re: “Republicans plan march for Trump, including in Hot Springs

Trump supporters should wait to show their support until after he actually DOES something, like create Arkansas jobs. And that "socialism" you're so radically against? Too late, it already exists. But if you'd like to forfeit Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits - AND stop using public roads, schools, parks and libraries - I'm sure the government would like to hear from you. Something tells me you didn't excel in school anyway and you have little use for books - in the library, or otherwise.

Re: “Darkness falls; reefer anyone?

The stupidity of this country is mind-numbing. The fact that a man who cannot be trusted with a Twitter account by campaign staffers now has access to the nuclear codes, is absolutely unthinkable. And yet here we are...

Re: “Re-vote on mental health cut defeated at Legislative Council

Arkansas will now only allow 25 group therapy visits a year, but will gladly pay $30k a year for incarceration. Sure. Makes sense. Hmmm, gotta think limiting chemo treatments for cancer patients is next, right? #sarcasm

Re: “UPDATED: A night at the Trump Show

I thought you were going to point out that Barton was the perfect venue because of their past affiliation with circus shows. The kid's Tshirt with "Obama Your Fired" says everything you need to know about Trump supporters as well as some Arkansas schools. I can't believe the woman on disability is unhappy with the ACA. Thanks to that, hundreds of thousands of Arkansans have the same healthcare benefits SHE enjoys. So many people are uninformed, it's scary. Calling them "low information" voters is extremely generous. I don't think Trump is going to make anything in America great again, except the perception that a higher than expected percentage of us are idiots.

Re: “The Joint's 'Little Rock and a Hard Place' offers sharp satire of local politics

What if you don't know the history of Argenta? Would it still be funny?
