Fallout to the Weekend

Medicaid Expansion Fight Continues

The Arkansas House has not budged in its effort to passing necessary legislation to keep the private option often referred to as Medicaid expansion of the Affordable Care Act funded. This action
warrants and requires a civil discourse action from not only stakeholders but all the states citizen's whom believe that a healthy state is a prosperous one. Community collaborators will spearhead a rally on the steps of the State Capitol, Monday (2/24/14), 11- 1pm on the steps of the Capitol. (500 Woodlane Drive in downtown Little Rock).

COP 24/7 urges everyone to attend to demonstrate your support that this measure will serve over 100,000 citizens who deserve access to healthcare via this program. As we post, there is much horse trading and most likely many back room deals being floated as the House prepares to vote again Tuesday (2/25/14). It is vital that the voice of the people be peacefully but forcefully heard. Social media is on fire with activist and advocates keeping followers updated down to the second. Even as the fight wages on, there is still information and enrollment assistance at 501.349-7777.  In the meantime, currently there are two stalwarts who need to hear from us all they are:
