Members of Arkansas congressional delegation seek rice sales January 23, 2015 at 6:57 p.m.

Why would any country want to buy contaminated rice? Most people don't want arsenic in their food.
.
From the consumer report:
All types of rice (save sushi and quick-cooking rice) from Arkansas, Louisiana, or Texas or labeled generally as from the U.S. had the highest levels of arsenic.

Arkansas' model Medicaid experiment in jeopardy December 19, 2014 at 3:31 a.m.

Obamacare did NOT do away with catastrophic coverage.
.
Before Obamacare, insurance companies could market across state lines provided they are licensed to do business in that state.
After Obamacare, insurance companies can market across state lines provided they are licensed to do business in that state.
Nothing prevents an insurance company from doing business in any state as long as they buy licenses in those states. This was true before Obamacare and after Obamacare.
.
What changed? NOTHING!

.
"Cross state line marketing" that republicans are pushing would take away states' rights and do away with consumer protection. It is also called "a race to the bottom." Nice.

Nurse defies Ebola quarantine in Maine October 31, 2014 at 2:08 p.m.

Why should anybody be quarantined when they are NOT sick? I'm certain that this nurse has more knowledge concerning Ebola in her little finger than all the politicians put together. For crying out loud!
.
What is so hard for people to understand about this disease? More people die from the regular flu and the same people harping on this nurse will send their kids to school and go to work sick. Do you want to start quarantines on all sick people?

Dwindling Democrats October 27, 2014 at 1:55 p.m.

Fact check:
The tax cuts cost the federal government $1 trillion in lost revenue over 10 years from all taxpayers, according to a December 2010 report by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. The two-year extension cost an additional $363.5 billion in lost revenue. Other partisan groups have put the figure much higher. Citizens for Tax Justice puts the total at more than $2 trillion over 10 years. The Tax Foundation says that “there is no definitive answer” for how much the Bush tax cuts cost in lost revenue.
