This is undeniable proof Republicans have no desire to help fellow citizens. Republicans are sick people. Vote these aberrations of society out.

Unfortunately for the poor, the State decision to stop payments to providers who actually help poor patients in Arkansas is purely a Republican punishment to the lesser able citizens of Arkansas. From the article:
"None of Arkansas' Medicaid dollars go toward abortions because of a state law preventing such funding. At issue are funds meant to cover cancer screenings, treatment for sexually transmitted infection, contraception and other preventive care to nearly 4,500 patients in Arkansas annually, many of whom depend on Medicaid. "
The people of America and Arkansas are subjected to a Political "Let them eat Cake" mentality. And these politicians claim the Moral high ground? Shameful behavior.

Stole this from cliffcarson, because I could think of no better way of putting it in Writing,
Republicans are Devious People, Steal from the Poor and give to the Rich, Shameful to say the least about so called Religious People, Glad my God does not think Like their Devil God.
