Governor Asa Hutchinson claims ten State Senators are dangerous. He claims they are dangerous to the funding of education, roads, foster children, local programs, etc. because they oppose funding his rebranded Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion. He bases his claim on iffy and wishful projections of Obamacare Medicaid Expansion saving the state money. Of course, the Governor is unwilling to reduce the millions of dollars he controls for awarding corporate welfare to favored corporations.
The Governor’s wild prophesy of budget woes is not why the “Conservative Ten” are dangerous.
The “Conservative Ten” are dangerous to liberals because if the ten are successful in ending expanded Obamacare in Arkansas, they will embolden Obamacare opponents in every state that has passed Obamacare Medicaid Expansion. And that my friends, increases the pressure to dismantle all of Obamacare, nationwide.
In addition to the Conservative Ten, thirty members of the House of Representatives also voted against Arkansas Works in the Special Session also pose a danger to Obamacare. They need your support too.
