Former Mitt Romney healthcare advisor Avik Roy, who went from excited to cool about the “private option,” has a new post up this morning advising Arkansas Republicans to vote against it. You might be wondering why we should care what a writer at Forbes says about Arkansas, but keep in mind that Roy is an influential writer among local Republicans and his posts generally get passed around.

Unfortunately, Roy made two major factual errors in this post. After the jump: what he got wrong, which I have confirmed with DHS.
