ARKANSAS DEMOCRATS ON CASSIDY-GRAHAM HEALTH CARE PLAN: 'Arkansas Loses Big Time'
"Despite what the Washington elite like to think of themselves, they do not know better than Arkansas. In 2013, Governor Beebe alongside a super majority of both Republicans and Democrats figured out how to make Medicaid expansion work best for our state through our "Private Option.” Since then, we've had overwhelming bipartisan support for our plan now called “Arkansas Works" that covers more than 300,000 Arkansans and projects to have a $10 billion positive economic impact on our state by 2020.
"If Senators Tom Cotton and John Boozman truly care about what is best for the state of Arkansas, this should be the easiest NO votes they will cast their entire career. Our economy will lose billions, rural hospitals will become endangered and hundreds of thousands of Arkansans will have their insurance ripped away. Arkansas loses big time with this bill.”
