GOP Lawmaker Allows Obamacare Contracts to Go Forward Without Review
Rep. Johnathan Barnett (R) Siloam Springs (who is a prominently featured in our Worst Ten Legislators list) helped move contracts for implementing Obamacare in Arkansas forward without review by an important legislative subcommittee this week. Here are the details.
Barnett claims that he made the motion "by mistake" and that there would be another chance for another body to review the contracts to implement Obamacare's insurance exchanges in Arkansas on April 20th. Maybe, but it is also possible that the Governor has some backroom deal cut with some Republican legislator so that when that April 20th meeting comes along they "accidentally" move Obamacare forward again.
