  •  Here's a good article on how Arkansas (4+ / 0-)

    managed to get a bill passed.

    You'd be forgiven if your eyes have glazed over from time to time over the course of this long and often confusing debate. Healthcare reform is a subject that can get complicated quickly, with a lot of acronyms and numbers and jargon.

    It also has a real impact on real people's lives. One in four Arkansans between the ages of 19 and 64 does not have health insurance; more than 200,000 of the state's citizens will be gaining coverage from expansion. The decision will also have an outsized impact on the state's fiscal future — the state will have hundreds of millions more in its coffers because of expansion, along with the economic impact of billions in federal spending in Arkansas. Whatever your position, it was one of the biggest questions before the legislature in years, if not decades.
