Mississippi governor joins others in backing GOP health plan

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has joined seven other Republican governors in a letter endorsing the GOP plan to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law.

The Thursday letter to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan was also signed by the governors of Indiana, Alabama, Idaho, Kanas, Maine, Missouri and Utah

The governors say they support the plan’s more flexible Medicaid program and phased-in transition from Obama’s law.

The letter says the plan offers states more freedom on how they use money for Medicaid and allows them to require that participants have a job or go through job training.

The governors also say the plan moves the country away from a “‘free’ entitlement where all rules are made in Washington” to a state-driven healthcare system.

  1. we all work hard for our money and therefore one must be able to enjoy it. well no one is supposed to tell you how to spend it but on the other hand you need to get advise on how to spend it as in have financial education that we never get in school. so when it come to retirement and caring for yourself if you ever fall sick or get involed in an accident thats more important so i as well back it. Keep suportiong it to the end.
