Two AR Bills To Implement Obamacare in Arkansas HB2138 and SB880
To Be Heard Wednesday, the 23rd
A local doctor called his legislator this week and informed him that some of their fees would be cut in half with Beebe Obamacare 's implementation and that he is very concerned that many doctors will leave Arkansas. This particular doctor could retire, and it is not a personal issue with him but one of concern for Arkansans.
Following are the committee members that will be voting on HB2138 to implement Obamacare: See the three articles below that explain the two bills in progress simultaneously through the House and the Senate. "Those who support Obamacare are trying to implement it as fast as they can because they know even if the Supreme Court overturns this, it will be very hard to undo. ." Link to HB2138 http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2011/2011R/Bills/HB2138.pdf by Representatives Allen and Nickels and Senator Malone.

Tell Arkansas Legislators to Put Patients First
We need you to act! This week is the most crucial time we've seen regarding the government take-over of our health care.
There are two bills coming before the House and Senate this week that, if approved, would push Arkansas into the government health care take-over.
The two bills are HB2138 and SB880. HB2138 is currently slated to be heard before the House Insurance and Commerce Committee while SB880 will be heard before the Senate Public Health, Welfare, and Labor Committee.
Both bills will be heard this week.
Call your legislators today! Let them know to keep their hands off our health care. We must put patients, not insurance companies, not bureaucrats, but PATIENTS FIRST!
For Freedom & Liberty,
Arkansas State Director
Americans for Prosperity
