  • FOR MEDICAID EXPANSION: Mike Beebe continues to make his case.

Gov. Mike Beebe spoke to reporters today at an appearance before the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce. He reiterates that joining the federal Medicaid expansion is the best choice for continuing support for people who depend on Medicaid for nursing home care.

He says he's open to alternatives, given the unforgiving legislative math - a Republican majority and a 75-percent-vote requirement.

At some point, the new majority must stand up and be counted. Hazy talk about "skin in the game" and "waste, fraud and abuse" won't balance the budget or sustain programs. Specific alternatives will be necessary. Facts. Not faith.
