Thanks Senator Boozman

As we are all either trying to wind our way down to the new year or get those last couple of presents squared away, Washington, DC was at it again trying to spend away the future. The good news is that Senator Boozman kept his promise to preserve spending limits. We hope that you take [...]

Rally for Keystone XL in Cushing, OK on Thursday

March 20, 2012 J

[img_assist|nid=26985|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=300|height=200]President Obama will be making a photo-op stop in Cushing, Oklahoma on Thursday, March 22 at 9:30 a.m. Interestingly enough this happens to be the "pipeline crossroads of the world" and, as we're sure you remember, the Keystone Pipeline (Keystone XL) would've been a big deal for jobs and businesses in Cushing and here at home in Arkansas.

Unfortunately for us, though, the pipeline was made into a political game and, as Senator Mark Pryor said recently, probably won't be approved until after the election.

With that said, AFP-Arkansas is asking people to join us as we head to Cushign, OK to let the President know how we view his decision on Keystone XL. The details are below. We hope to see you there!

When: Thursday, March 22, 2012
Where: 2 buses will leave from AFP-Arkansas HQ (1800 S. 52nd in Rogers, AR) at 5:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.

ICYMI – Tomorrow’s Bad Ideas Today: Taxing Digital Downloads

March 20, 2012

The following story may be found on The Arkansas Project blog. This new tax doesn't appear to be on the horizon here in Arkansas; however never say never with the current administration.

Now is the time to weep for the good people of Connecticut! In addition to having to live with the indignity of being denizens of “The Nutmeg State,” they now have to suffer under lawmakers who are seeking to slap a sales tax on all their digital downloads. Buying a book for your Amazon Kindle or downloading a couple of tracks off iTunes? Pony up, kiddo.

States should reject Obamacare exchanges

March 15, 2012 J

AFP's very own Nicole Kaeding wrote an excellent article on why states should decide against any healthcare exchanges. The end result is limited or no freedom in our own healthcare decisions. Anyone who continues to tout that these "exchanges" would be our own (especially after taking Federal money to set them up) is kidding themselves. With that said, why would Governor Mike Beebe continue to support this plan?

One of the most important issues facing states this legislative session is whether to create a health care exchange to implement the president’s health care law. States are being tempted by words like “flexibility” and very large grants from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to gain their compliance, but states that value health care freedom should resist and refuse to implement Obama’s health care exchanges.

We believe the President’s entire health care law must be struck down.
