Ah, more privatization of our prison systems. What could possibly go wrong with a corporation who's already facing multiple lawsuits being allowed access to our youth in Arkansas? I would love to see a comparison of costs to taxpayers were the State to directly hire health professionals vs contracting to private firms who are more concerned with profit than people. We're supposed to believe private companies are more efficient than government, but that's a political lie that began under Reagan and continues to this day. My response to those allegations is that a government or a corporation is as efficient as those running it, so vote Republicans out and get someone in who knows what the hell they are doing. Republicans only know how to privatize and demonize and that they do very well but governing a country like the US? Not so much.
