Again,if these professionals would get off of their butts and do the job they are paid to do and stop trying to cover things up to prevent themselves from being jobless our children or elderly wouldn't be suffering.Why not start with how much a physician gets paid and how much taxes they actually pay in.Ask them to make a donation to the schools and to the poorly managed nursing homes.

It's going to get rough in the coming years. They're probably going to shut down a lot of schools, including all the black colleges save Jackson State Uni.

They're going to scale back education and medicare spending. We're already held up by federal money. Without it frankly we'd be Africa. Most of this state is already about on par with Mexico.
