The Arkansas Times reports that the Arkansas House of Representatives has failed to vote to accept federal funding for Medicaid expansion via the private option for Fiscal 2015.
The Arkansas House of Representatives voted 70-27 with one present to approve an appropriation bill to continue for a second year the private option version of Medicaid expansion provided by the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
That was five votes short of the number needed. It will be brought up again.
28% of the chamber did not vote to accept free money. They decided to throw 95,000 people off of Medicaid.
I’ll split the no block to an equal split of special crazification factor and general crazification factors.
