For health care to go through the current route: falling ever-further behind the market-driven direction of history, riddled with bureaucracy and undergoing unending pressure toward the disaster of single payer. This is an intolerable result.

The failure traces to a lack of understanding and imagination at the top. There is no other choice: the repeal and replace must be done at the lower levels of society, by people with an intellectual comprehension of the stakes and the real solution.

The only real option to correcting this mess is getting government out of it. That’s obviously not going to happen with the current crop of geniuses scurrying around under the Capitol Dome in DC. Removing government from the equation isn’t really a high priority for lawmakers in Mississippi either, no matter what they tell you. This includes the spineless Republicans who are more adept at spouting talking points on the campaign trail than they are finding ways to put those points into action that accomplishes the goal.

What the slave apparently didn’t know about Jefferson was the many years he had wrestled with the problem of slavery, much as today we see groups making demands without first demanding of themselves a fuller understanding of the circumstances that has led to their perception of the underlying challenge. In November of 1808, President Thomas […]

Government becomes involved in certain areas of our lives; the problems then become worse, so the government has to devise another solution to fix the problem that it created in the first place. It results in a neverending cycle of government intervention.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower federal court’s decision to strike down House Bill 1523, allowing the law to take effect. The ruling was that the original plaintiffs challenging House Bill 1523 lacked standing, because they “have not shown an injury-in-fact caused by HB 1523.”

That’s exactly what these four articles published over a year ago on MississippiPEP.com explained.
