Ross criticizes Hutchinson's position on private option

Posted: Updated:

 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Ross sits down with Roby Brock this Sunday on "Talk Business and Politics" on KATV.

 Ross shares his thoughts on taxes, his primary opponent and Arkansas's private option.

 Last week, Republican gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson expressed his support of the private option, calling it the law of the land and describing it as a pilot program.

 Ross, also a supporter of the private option, takes exception to that characterization.

 "The more than 100,000 working Arkansans who now have access to health care or our struggling rural hospitals that are barely keeping their doors open, and I understand that because we lost the hospital in my hometown back in the '90s, they don't believe this is a pilot project," Ross said.

 There is more of this interview with Mike Ross, plus the new Speaker-designate of the House and the Senate President-designate join our round table, Sunday at 9 a.m.
