BOBBY HARRISON: Health insurance still eludes many working Mississippians

JACKSON – House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, who is a proud fiscal and social conservative, got philosophical recently when he was explaining to members of the media why he is not crazy about the federal government’s plan to provide health care to a segment of the uninsured population by expanding Medicaid – a federal-state health care program.

He was stating his opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – often called Obamacare – and bemoaned the amount of governmental dependence.
