Jackson – In a unanimous vote on Monday, the Mississippi Republican Party Central Committee passed a resolution supporting Governor Phil Bryant, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves, Speaker of the House Philip Gunn, and all of the Republican elected officials resisting the implementation of Obamacare – including the expansion of Medicaid.

The resolution also supports GOP officials in their attempts to find better alternatives to improve the healthcare of Mississippians.

“I appreciate the position of the State Central Committee as Lt. Governor Tate Reeves, House Speaker Philip Gunn and I continue to resist efforts by the Democrats to expand the largest entitlement program in this state’s history,” said Governor Phil Bryant.

“Our party is unified and supports the prudent & careful approach advocated by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Speaker. At a time when we learn more every day about improper government intrusion into the lives of ordinary citizens, it defies logic to embrace an expansion of that intrusion,” said MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef
