GOP has discovered a new sub-human species, "Able-Bodied Adult Without Dependents" (ABAWD), described as lazy, no-good, undeserving of healthcare.

GOP psychopaths choose cruelty over compassion, with Arkansas leading the Nation as the first state to force work requirements, just to get on Trump's favorite state status.

Homeless and many other "invisible" people, our brothers and sisters, will end up in Emergency Rooms dying from chronic diseases.

Arkansas Works 3.0 will solve the high cost of Emergency Room care by hiring security to take ABAWD to the new Private GEO Arkansas Detention Centers

Arkansas Works 4.0 will solve the cost of incarceration, providing a cardboard box and a shovel. Hey, this is the Natural State!

"LAZY"

an able bodied man with no dependents who expects taxpayers to pay for his medical care

Yes, the definition fits.

In the long run, this will cost more than providing the health insurance.

Why not create a program where they pick up litter? Many of them walk the streets daily and there is no shortage of litter anywhere in Pulaski County.
