Undecided
I do not support "ObamaCare" but since it is a Federal mandate, then I think Arkansas should do everything we can to control our destiny and retain control and influence over our healthcare dollars. While the "Private Option" allowed Arkansas some input over the control of Healthcare dollars, I think the Health Reform Legislative Task Force has been innovative in attempting to deal with this onerous program.
