A key Florida legislative committee leader is quoted in the Miami Herald as saying the “Arkansas model,” meaning this use of federal Medicaid dollars to buy private health insurance for poor people, is something to look at it.
“What Arkansas did — it wasn’t even a concept. I didn’t even think about it,” said Lake O’ Lakes Republican Richard Corcoran.
I am compelled to report that, from what I’m told, this “premium support” notion in Arkansas came from young Republican legislative working groups led by Sen. David Sanders, a former Stephens Media understudy columnist to me, and Rep. John Burris, former Burger King manager in Harrison.
Great country or what?
