Medicaid hangs in the balance as both chambers kill tech bills

The Mississippi Division of Medicaid hangs in the balance this Friday after the House and Senate killed both technical amendment bills on adjournment for the week.

Today was the deadline for any bills held on a motion to reconsider to either be brought to back the floor or die on the calendar. Both Medicaid technical amendment bills were held on that motion, after passage on the floor Thursday. The House was considering SB 2799, which passed on a vote of 116 to 3, while the Senate had HB 1008 which passed 47 to 3.

After convening at 9:00am Friday, the House recessed subject to call of the chair. The reasoning, Speaker Gunn said, was to wait to see what business the Senate took up before moving forward.

When the Senate met, the chamber moved through their calendar taking up only a few items and ultimately leaving the Medicaid tech bill from the House to die. Knowing this, it remains unclear as to why the House also let the Senate’s version of the bill die.

1. Because the more people who die in America, the less votes for DEMS.

They purge voting rolls and let COVID run wild so that only the "rich" will be able to protect themselves and less and less of the majority are left to do anything.

They CAN'T win in a fair election anymore, so they are just knocking the foundations out from anything that actual protects the rights of the people to live and hold them accountable.
