The Arkansas Citizens First Congress,
a progressive grassroots group, is urging all to sign a petition pressing the legislature to approve the Medicaid expansion
plan pending before the legislature.
There's a petition to sign here.
The group notes the large majority by which the rebranded Arkansas Works
plan for using Obamacare
money for Medicaid expansion passed and the immense benefits it provides, beginning with health coverage but also for the state budget generally.
The group is staying out of the procedural maneuvering underway to find a way to passage around 10 holdouts in the Senate. It speaks simply to the greater good. It describes the Terrible Ten's resistance as a "game of chicken" in a mailer being distributed.
