This week, Mississippi Republican Governor Phil Bryant had great news for the residents of the Magnolia State. Whether you have insurance or not, cancer or cardiac disease, diabetes or dialysis, Bryant declared, "There is no one who doesn't have health care in America."
Rejecting the Affordable Care Act 's expansion of Medicaid which would enable coverage for200,000 more Mississippians, Bryant surprised no one by echoing the same GOP prescription offered by President George W. Bush, Tom Delay, Mitch McConnell, Paul Broun and most recently Mitt Romney that "you just go to an emergency room." Still, Governor Bryant's statement is shocking nonetheless, given that his state's health care system ranks dead lastin the entire country.
