Speaking to the Boston Globe, the governor dismissed the idea that Mississippi would benefit from an infusion of federal resources to help expand Medicaid access, even with nearly 18 PERCENT of the state’s population (half a million residents) lacking primary care.

~~~

“There’s NOBODY in MISSISSIPPI who does NOT have access to health care,’’ Barbour said. “One of the great problems in the conversation is the misimpression that if you don’t have insurance, you don’t get health care.”

– Governor Haley Barbour

A later clarification from an aide:

In an email to the Huffington Post, a Barbour aide clarified that the governor was referring to “emergency room procedures” when talking about universal access.

“The Governor is imminently aware the status quo is not optimal for Mississippians, as it’s neither cost effective nor does it address his preventative care concerns,” the aide added.

~~~

In summary:

1. 18% of his (Barbour) states population do NOT have ‘primary care’.

2. The care they do recieve is NEITHER ‘cost effective’, NOR does it address ‘preventative care concerns’.

3.  Governor Barbour (R) is a disingenuous bastard!
