    Mississippi can do better, and there are real solutions to improving health care.

    To start, each of us must assume personal responsibility for our own health and our own choices. Living a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a proper diet can help shrink Mississippi’s obesity rate and the chronic diseases like diabetes that accompany it.  Hazardous activities like smoking erode our health, and we must do all in our power to fight the epidemic of teen pregnancy—an issue that has far-reaching consequences for our state.

    At the core is job creation. We must continue working to create an environment where businesses flourish so Mississippians can secure sound employment and fund their own health insurance. We should also purchase health insurance across state lines and work to lower insurance costs by pooling employees of small businesses.

    Mississippi can and will do better. As governor, I will fight to protect our future—our education, our safety and our jobs—and that means that I will resist any effort to expand Medicaid in this state.

    So Medicaid is more expensive than emergency rooms?

    An idiot alright.

      ... to Blue Cross Blue to cover uncompensated expenses from the uninsured than take money from the federal government. Phil Bryant is unbelievably awful. I didn't think I'd dislike anyone more than Haley Barbour but Bryant passed that bar long ago.

      fell off a ladder, fell down stairs, got hit in a cross walk by a hit and run driver, drowned, choked or had any other of the myriad experiences we call ACCIDENTS, which no one has any control over and which also generate horrific bills which drive people into bankruptcy and then poverty if they are unfortunate enough to have an accident and be uninsured.

      People who are this blatantly stupid and/or callous and uninformed have no business being in public office.
