    Christmas in Conway

    We posted this image recently on Facebook, and got the following in reply from an anonymous reader. What do you think, Conway?

    AsaWorks: Tyranny of the Minority, or ?

    During this public comment period on Governor Asa Hutchinson’s Arkansas Works/Private Option/AsaWorks Medicaid expansion plan, it is good to reflect on the bill and its passage back in April.

    “If I Don’t Agree, You Don’t Get an Opinion!”

    “If I don’t agree, then you don’t even have a right to express your opinion!” Progressives are more and more willing to draw this bottom line in ever-expanding, increasingly flagrant attacks on our country’s First Amendment free speech rights. From vocal opponents at Presidential primary political rallies to college campuses to Facebook, the very existence... by OurVoicesAR

    The Governor Has Spoken:
    “Arkansas 10” Off the Island

    How is Governor Asa Hutchinson’s Republican majority in Arkansas like a reality show? They both feature folks who’ll do anything to anybody to win. The more unethical and ugly the tactics and behaviors, the more the so-called winners are rewarded to move along to the big finale. Players take one adamant position and then another,... by OurVoicesAR

    Who Ya Gonna Trust, the Arkansas GOP?

    Shame on Arkansas’s GOP Governor and pro-Obamacare lawmakers, who are abandoning good governance, as well as the values of their own political party, when they circumvent the Arkansas Constitution to have their way on the Governor’s unethical Medicaid Expansion ploy.

    Governor Hutchinson’s Clever Plan Falls

    Governor Hutchinson and pro-Obamacare Medicaid Expansion lawmakers had a clever plan to circumvent the 75% bar for appropriations to get Arkansas Works passed — but that shell game fell yesterday to a bipartisan vote driven by Democrats on the Joint Budget Committee.

    Democrat Lawmakers Play Hardball in Fiscal Session

    Democrats in the Arkansas Legislature played hardball during yesterday’s first day of the fiscal session, blocking a key House vote as well as the Governor’s plan to pass his Medicaid Expansion bill in the Joint Budget Committee.

    ARGOP’s Foster Care Cuts: More Scare Tactics

    We’ve come to expect the usual draconian budget responses from politicos when they’re not getting their way about spending more money, but the GOP’s latest tactic in the state’s Medicaid expansion fight is a doozy. Yesterday, Arkansans woke up to news stories screaming “Schools, prisons, and foster care to take hit” if the Governor’s planned... by OurVoicesAR

    Angry Voters: Whose Fault Is It?

    Today’s news reports are full of stories about how angry Trump supporters are. They’re just the tip, the visible ones of a tidal wave that’s driving the 2016 election cycle at both the national and state levels.

    The Law is the Law — Unless It’s Arkansas

    Quick, how are Arkansas Republicans like Donald Trump? As the fiscal session nears, the usual political balderdash coming from Arkansas pro-Obamacare Republicans has intensified beyond reason, much like our national Republican presidential nominee fight. In their zeal to continue Obamacare to childless working adults in Arkansas, pro-Medicaid expansion legislators and Gov Hutchinson are again questioning... by OurVoicesAR
