Compared to the screaming and fit throwing witnessed at some of the national town hall meetings on health care, Sen. Roger Wicker’s crowd Tuesday in Natchez was sedate, if not a bit lethargic.
And that’s probably a good thing because understanding and communication generally stop when the yelling and fuming start. The Natchez crowd mostly seemed against massive government intervention into sweeping health care reforms.
That was no surprise. Most Mississippians tend to be moderate, fairly levelheaded folks.
And applying moderate, level-headed thinking to the health care reform bills currently under consideration will leave most intelligent people baffled as to how Congress ever gets anything accomplished.
