Posted on 03/08/2011 4:05:08 PM PST by DCBryan1
Well.. get this... Our Socialistic Governor met with Mr. Obama recently. Our governor has agreed that Arkansas will be the first state to implement Obamacare. Mr. Beebe announced this to the leadership at the Capitol yesterday. He will be changing Medicare by his own power, very likely in April or May. He is clearly on the side of the Socialist. After learning this Mr. Garner will not be presenting his capital gains tax bill tomorrow.
The big question is what is Beebe (D-AR) getting in return? He obviously knows what happened to Blanche Lincoln.
Secondly, Why is the Gov. of the state (that went one of the most red (behind WI)last election ) agreeing to this horrible bill even though the state wants it defeated 70%+?
Right now, local talk-radio anchor Dave Elswick of KARNnewsradio.com is calling for hundreds of people to show up to tommorrow Health committee at the Arkansas State capital. IMHO, it should dwarf what the WI state capital has looked like lately. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!
Mass. and W Virginia are already test cases.
There already has been a test, or rather an on-going test of Obamacare. Look at Massachusetts.
Recall the Gov, now!!
Besides, it’s Unconstitutional.
But this is how it OUGHT to happen.
Federalism lets the states be their own laboratories. Like RomneyCare. Let them do it and let them bear the consequences.
That’s what’s wrong with Obamacare fundamentally, it destroys the state independence.
With any luck zer0 will step on his stethoscope next week and Judge Vinson will declare the whole thing unconstitutional and shut it down.
If true, Arkansas residents are f***ed.
Thanks for the interesting and informative post. Who is Mr. Garner?
Interesting. One suspects that what he gets will be vastly less (or nothing) compare to what he is promised/threatened.
These Dems haven't figured out that Mister Obama's promises to them are no more true than his other lies, eh?
Recall the SOB!

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Wrong...state RATS shouldn't collude with socialists on federal programs without the State Leg and Senate, and hell, a "shout out" to the people about his devious plans.
I have a friend in Massachusetts with whom I argue the Nationalized Medicine issue. She was pretty Conservative until her health care plan dropped her when she was diagnosed with a polyp in her colon (before Romneycare). Now she wants Nationalized Medicine because Massachusetts can’t afford their plan alone. I pointed out to her that doing that would require people in other states to carry Mass. health care costs and what do those other states do with their own skyrocketing costs if they are carrying Massachusetts? I said I thought it should be a States rights issue. Any State wanting a Socialized Medical system is welcome to change to it. Then if people don’t want to live with Socialized Medicine they can move to another state. She was speechless.
As an aside, if the Ark. Gov. is doing this, you can bet Obama will cook the books to make it look successful. That is the only way Obama can achieve ANY success with ANY of his ideas. Cheating.
“The big question is what is Beebe (D-AR) getting in return? He obviously knows what happened to Blanche Lincoln.”
What is he getting in return? Maybe you should ask, what does Obama have on him.
This could always be a Clinton setup. Obamacare comes to Arkansas, it fails miserbly to a point of indictments and “Hillary to the Green room please.”
In exchange Bebe gets a spot in the administration.
Cheating was the only way he could get elected.
GOVERNOR'S MEDICAID REFORM ENCOUNTERING APPREHENSION
Opinions of judges that our Fundamental Transformer in Chief doesn’t endorse simply are ignored. He just knows in his gut what must be done, for our benefit.
Heaven forfend that someone on FR should injure their mouse-clicking index finger by actually having to visit another forum, or (HORROR!) a blog!
There are numerous ways to protest this. Should we call?? Write?? E-mail?? What is the most effective way to protest this?? I can’t drive down there tomorrow to the Capital or I would.
Why Arkansas? How will this affect WalMart based out of Arkansas. Seems kind of suspicious. When does it go into effect. what happens if Walmart says that is it and pulls up and moves it corporate headquarters to Texas. Walmart - well we will be damned to be forced into Obamacare because throughout the Us all are other associates at sam’s and walmarts would be affected and no one would shop at either place and thus the unemployment level would rise even higher thus defeating ObamaCare and making a single payer system mandatory. Unless walmart does accept and it does screw Wal mart too.
I do not shop at Walmart, since I have to drive to either Marquette or Houghton to go to Walmart. Generally Pamida or Snyders are okay.
For once I can say, “It’s great to live in Michigan!”
Not only is MA the first test case, but AR would not even be in the top 20...
There is the test case in VA (aka, the Henry Hudson case)
Then, there was the test case in FL (Vinson case).
Its failed everywhere its been tried, here and abroad.
BeeBee’s office number is 501-682-2345
Two Peas in a Pod
All Texas needs to do is go see all the Arkansas doctors and
convince them to come here - we’re short doctors.
Probably wouldn’t take a whole lot of convincin.
I have a feeling Obama doesn’t know what a stethoscope is.
He might step all over something anyway.
But yet these clowns still want to push it through. God help us.
Your friend wasn’t “pretty conservative”
I agree with that!
Arkansas citizens should vote with their feet. Move away from there.
What’s with Arkansas? First clintoon, then huckabee, now this creep.
Heck if I know..........
The first thing you know old Jed’s a millionaire.
The kinfolks said ‘Jed, move away from there!’
Said ‘Californee is the place you oughta’ be.’
So they loaded up their truck and they moved to Beverly.
Most of them can’t afford to “move away from there”.
I graduated from high school with a guy who’s a rich, big shot farmer....former president of the Arkansas Farm Bureau. He campaigned and endorsed the republican for senate but supported Beebe for governor. He said to a friend “Beebe’s not doing that bad a job.”
Arkansas racists helped elect and re-elect Clinton (the first black president) for governor. It’s not possible to understand the mind of a southern liberal.
I think Tennessee would also consider itself a test case as well (Tenncare).
Unfortunately I now believe Vinson won’t do anything to stop Obamacare.
Has anyone here seen what happens when you set fire to a rotten log infested with ants???
What kind of silly Caca is this???
I didn’t realize Ark had the option to NOT implement Bamicare right along with everyone else!
I wonder how many unions in Ark already got their waiver from Mr. Commie-Corn? I wonder how they will feel about Obama rescinding their waivers based on the Governor’s offer?
Something smells pretty rotten here, and the buzzards look hungry!
I detect the stench of voter fraud...
The people of Arkansas are not STUPID.
Beebe had token opposition. This will end his career in Arkansas politics. What a piece of excrement!! I cannot find words to express my revulsion and I am SURE the people of Arkansas feel the same!!
Well, well....my phone just rang and it’s a town hall w/none other than Senator Pryor! I’m pretty ticked right now and would appreciate any suggestions on exactly how to phrase my anger over this.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
He is discussing his support for ObamaCare right now. I can’t stand this SOB!
You voted him him... Stop voting for those stupid fat Baptist preacher types.
I agree! We're moving!
