   The JFP Editorial Board writes:  Not coincidentally, Gov. Haley Barbour is currently on tour to promote the book he co-wrote with Democratic strategist Jere Nash. While Barbour apparently calls the Port of Gulfport the “one that got away,” the truth is, the project stands with other shining beacons of the “Haley Barbour Victory Tour”—Silicor, […]

Editors Note: The following is an excerpt from Bill Crawford’s latest commentary. His suggestion that Gov. Bryant go along with a policy move, because former Gov. Barbour supported it negates a growing body of evidence that Medicaid expansion, and the state insurance exchange, is bad business. He also seems to forget that Barbour could be […]
