You Won’t Believe What Mark Pryor Said About Obamacare This Time

Pryor IQ meme

We already know that Senator Mark Pryor thinks Obamacare is an "amazing success story" that is "creating jobs."

WaPo Fact Checker: Dem Claims About Cotton Are “Phony As A Three-Dollar Bill”

pinocchio

Senate Majority PAC -- a political action committee run by the former employees of  Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Al Gore, John Kerry, and the Clintons -- has released a new ad that slams Rep. Tom Cotton. However, in typical Reid-Gore-Kerry-Clinton fashion, the ad plays fast-and-loose with the facts. Actually, that’s being generous: this ad just makes stuff up. The ad begins with a falsehood about Congressman Cotton, stating that Cotton “got paid handsomely working for insurance … [Read more...]

Oh Look, Another Obamacare Delay!

A little late to the game here -- and there may be another delay before I even finish writing this piece -- but would you believe that there was another Obamacare delay last week? This time, President Obama is (shockingly) pushing more mandates past the next election. According to CNBC, this recent delay will allow folks to keep their plans for an additional two years, even if they don’t meet Obamacare’s new “minimum standards,” if their states allow it. Which is weird, because I’m pretty sure … [Read more...]

There has been much discussion of the position of University of Arkansas lobbyist over the last few weeks. State Senator Johnny Key has been the focus of various news reports after announcing that he would not seek re-election and instead take a shot at becoming the next U of A leech government relations expert. Recently former Lieutenant Governor Mark Darr has also made some waves after he submitted his application for the gig. (Perhaps he has a future in sales as well.) However, yet another … [Read more...]

In The News: Mark Pryor Is Still Lying!

Terrified incumbent Senator Mark Pryor has a television ad out that attacks Congressman Tom “Young-man-in-a-hurry-to-stop-Obama” Cotton. According to Pryor, Cotton hates old people and wants to kill Medicare. Or something. But according to not one but two fact-checking organizations, Mark Pryor’s ads are false. According to the ad from Pryor, Cotton voted for a Medicare plan that would “increase out-of-pocket expenses for every senior in Arkansas.” Politifact says the ad is “mostly … [Read more...]

Happy Monday. With another vote on Obamacare “private” option funding as scheduled for tomorrow in the Arkansas House, we’ve compiled a few stories that you need to read. 1.

Mark Pryor’s Facebook #Fail

MarkPryor

After 11 years in the U.S. Senate, embattled Senator Mark Pryor finally joined the rest of civilization and set up a Facebook page last year. I’d say this is a smart move, considering his re-election hopes get dimmer by the day (Rep. Tom Cotton outpaced him in fundraising last quarter, and political sage Professor Larry Sabato just moved the race from “toss up” to “leans Republican.”) Pryor mostly uses his Facebook page to post photos: Pryor in camo, Pryor with Bill Clinton, or a cute shot of a … [Read more...]
