It’s obvious that Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant erred terribly when he blocked Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney from setting up a state-run health-insurance exchange.
Bryant’s not just made it harder for the uninsured to get coverage, as required by Obamacare. He may also be costing them more when they do find it, according to an analysis published Sunday by The Clarion-Ledger of Jackson.The entire article is required reading, but yeah, that's pretty much the whole story about Gov. Bryant (R) and his pigheadedness when it comes to anything at all Washington-related. I was actually mildly surprised to see Gov. Bryant's statement of support for U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (R) yesterday, considering how every other word out of Bryant's mouth is anti-spending Tea Party propaganda.
