Bryant: Federal health law hurts Miss. economy

Republican Gov. Phil Bryant says the 2010 federal health care overhaul is slowing Mississippi’s economy because business owners are confused about how much it will cost them to meet demands of the law.

“The Obama administration has not done a very good job of giving companies some encouragement of investing in their corporations, expanding them to try to move forward,” Bryant told reporters Wednesday. “They still don’t know what impact Obamacare will have upon their industry. And they’re very nervous out there. They’re not going to grow until they know something.”
