Mad Man Takes Legislature Hostage!



News Flash: Mad-man holds legislature hostage! The vote to fund the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare failed in the house today by five votes.   House Speaker Davy Carter says he is going to keep calling for the same vote until he gets the result that he wants! Is this the way the Republic is supposed to work? Someone call hostage rescue! Really, read this and see if you can come to another other conclusion.  http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2014/feb/18/houses-votes-private-option-medicaid-ex/

"House Speaker Davy Carter says he is going to keep calling for the same vote until he gets the result that he wants!" I guess that's how it works in Arkansas. It is just like term limits. Voters voted for term limits in 1992 and 2004 and politicians want to try to gut them again in 2014.

Right Philip, and they call it "ethics reform" and "ESTABLISHING term limits" in the referred amendment. They are even fibbing in their amendment that is ostensibly about ethics reform!
