‘MS still has the lowest per capita personal income, just as it has for nearly 90-years, and an abysmally low labor force participation rate (LFPR). It’s lower today, in fact, than in 1976, which was during one of the worst economic depressions in US history.’

What? This isn’t news?

It is to Governor Phil Bryant.

Mississippians might expect it to be the job of the state’s public university administrations to always look for ways to provide services that students value and can use. Apparently the ‘W’ needed a financial incentive from the federal government.

Regardless of the position one holds on abortion, funding at least warrants concern over the fiscal irresponsibility of such a decision. Of course, the fact that a large number of taxpayers take exception with abortion being defined in a list of services as “reproductive health” should be the primary focus. A sting of several of Planned Parenthood’s providers in 2015 showed how the organization profits from the sale of discarded embryos. Moral concerns are only heightened by the cavalier attitude and lack of respect Planned Parenthood shows towards the most innocent of human lives.

The Trump administration on Wednesday reported $23 billion in savings from 176 deregulatory actions in fiscal year 2018. Even more consequential, the administration has issued 65 percent fewer “significant” rules—those with costs that exceed $100 million a year—than the Obama administration, and 51 percent fewer than the Bush administration, after 22 months in office.

The current federal disability system is broken and desperately needs reform. The program has diverged from its original design as a safety net for the permanently and severely disabled,instead becoming a lifestyle for too many adults with manageable work limits. While many of these recipients have substantial disabilities, many individuals have much more manageable work limitations and are more work-capable in the modern American economy.

“Lifelong conservatives” don’t vote to detain US citizens without trial during wartime, or anytime for that matter. They don’t vote in favor of bills that increase government spending and extend massive crony capitalism programs. And they don’t vote against efforts to impose small cuts in total federal spending.
