An Arkansas Solution to a National Problem (Davy Carter Commentary)
Arkansans are innovative people. From farmers who engineer their own equipment when there are no other options to entrepreneurs like J.B. Hunt and Sam Walton who used groundbreaking concepts to build Fortune 500 companies, our state is embedded with a history of innovation.  In that same innovative spirit, for the past four years, Arkansas has become a national leader in health care policy. In fact, Arkansas is a shining example of what states can accomplish in health care if given enough flexibility and control over designing programs that best serve their citizens. Today, Congress is once again considering potential...

The Overlooked Trumpcare Threat: A Medicare Time Bomb
Just over two years ago, Donald Trump gave a speech announcing his run for the presidency. In that speech, he promised that he would not cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. That promise became a centerpiece of his campaign. It was a key way for Trump to differentiate himself, as a matter of policy, from his Republican primary opponents – a distinction he happily and frequently pointed out. In the general election, the promise helped him appeal to voters who don’t traditionally support the GOP. But six months into his presidency, Trump has already betrayed those voters by breaking his promise. Indeed, ra...
