Don’t cut Medicaid
Cutting Medicaid is bad for Arkansas! Medicaid spending creates good health-care jobs, gets sick people quickly back to work, saves families from paying Grandma’s health costs, and helps poor children grow into productive citizens. It’s a public investment that infuses billions of dollars into our local communities and businesses.
Just last year, total Medicaid spending in Arkansas was about $6 billion, and the Feds paid 90 percent of that money. Take away the partisan politics and I think you’ll see that everybody in Arkansas benefits from this program.
If you care about the quality of life in Arkansas, you should demand more Medicaid spending, not less. CHERYL WOODARD
