Re: “Another bad report on the Asa-backed health plan

It isn't just low-income families who are against the Cassidy Graham NoHealthCare Trumpcare plan. Cassidy-Graham are presenting the plan with fraudulent, erroneous math formulas, just so they can get the plan passed and pat themselves on the back for repealing Obamacare. Donald doesn't understand insurance. He has his pen ready to sign anything they put in front of him. This is irresponsible, bad leadership, that refuses to see the health care crisis they will cause all across the country. They want to give corrupt state governments the power to fix the mess and that does not bode well for the people of Arkansas.

Insurers Come Out Swinging Against New Republican Health Care Bill
By ROBERT PEARSEPT. 20, 2017

Republican senators from Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Ohio and West Virginia will all have to decide whether to heed the pleas of consumers who like the current health law or yield to the will of Republican leaders, donors and voters who demand an end to the Affordable Care Act.

Re: “Legislature itches for more control over 'independent' agencies

Don't give the legislature any more power. It destroys checks and balances, which is what they want.

Re: “A 4th inmate death this month referred to State Police

Is there a reason this is happening more frequently? Who is investigating? State police?

Re: “Arkansas Democrats fault governor for support of Graham-Cassidy health bill

Hutchinson's concern is losing federal money. He loves federal block grants, because he does not have to account to anyone for how Dennis Smith spends it. I think the question is what is the dollar amount of the block grant going to be and will the waivers save him money. Appeals for compassion is irrelevant to his priorities. To get elected he has to please his financial backers, which is the 1%.

Gov. Hutchinson had waivers ready in January to give to Congress whenever they decided what the heck they were doing with healthcare. I am hoping Hutchinson turned these waivers in, which hopefully gives a little help to low-income families, in case the Cassidy Graham nightmare healthcare bill passes. Of course he is concerned about the federal money he might lose. I don't know exactly what the waivers will cover. I think his decision to support Cassidy Graham could be because he knows his waivers were accepted or he knows the bill isn't going to pass. I don't think his chance for reelection is going to depend on low-income families. That's not his voter base. On the other hand, he doesn't want to make AMA lobbyist mad. Because of his Medicaid expansion, he is more vulnerable to losing federal funds. This is just my random thoughts.

Re: “Hutchinson's former chief of staff Lamoureux hits revolving door to state lobby firm

Just what the people of Arkansas need. Home grown corporate welfare lobbyist to advise the state government on how to screw tax payers out of more tax dollars.
