Republicans/corporations. It's all about the same. From a New York Times story on cuts in unemployment benefits nationwide:
In recent weeks, Republican leaders in Michigan, Arkansas and Florida have taken steps to limit their states’ contributions by cutting the duration of unemployment benefits.
It is true that Republicans were on the point in cutting back unemployment benefits and refusing a negotiated settlement offered by labor during this legislative session. But Arkansas is nominally, still, a Democratic-majority legislature and the governor is said to be a Democrat, if not on lunch bucket issues such as this one.
