“Anyone who says this bill will not have a devastating effect on our state is clearly more interested in promoting a partisan agenda than they are the health of our citizens or the health of our economy in Arkansas,” says Democratic Party of Arkansas Chairman, Michael John Gray. “This bill ends the Arkansas Works program and ultimately puts the coverage, the access to care, and the financial security of tens of thousands of Arkansans at risk. Our federal congressional delegation owes every Arkansan an explanation.”No response from Cotton's office to question about
“The Democratic Party of Arkansas rejects any move that would endanger the lives of so many children and the financial stability of so many families. The Republican bill will overburden every hospital with the return of uncompensated care costs, endanger rural hospitals, put hundreds of thousands of working families at risk and destabilize the Arkansas economy. If Republicans believe this legislation is a good path forward for our state and our country, then the least they can do is explain why to the voters of Arkansas,” Chairman Gray concluded.
