It’s a round-robin of topics for politicos with Arkansas Democrat-Gazette columnist John Brummett’s Monday conversation.

On this edition of Talk Business & Politics Daily, Brummett discusses the factors impacting the election of a moderate President in France versus a fervent nationalist candidate. Was Donald Trump a factor in the race?

Also, Brummett dives into the politics of the GOP-led House vote on healthcare last week. Was it rushed politics? Will the measure resemble itself once the Senate finishes with changes? And, what with the House of Representatives do next now that this to-do item is off their plate?

Federal healthcare changes could also impact state health insurance. Brummett explores the laws passed last week in an Arkansas special session. Does he think the Medicaid expansion alterations could have been handled differently?

Finally, the Arkansas House of Representatives drafted rules for impeaching public officials. With Pulaski County Judge Wendell Griffen in the crosshairs, Brummett predicts what may eventually happen on this front and what could happen in the long-run.
