Statement by Forest Thigpen on Supreme Court’s Decision

MARKETS WORK BETTER THAN MANDATES

This is a stunning expansion of the government’s power over our lives. It violates the principles of our nation’s founders. The Mississippi Center for Public Policy will continue to fight for free-market solutions to our nation’s health care problems.

Markets work better than mandates. Having the government tell people what to do never works. What works is for people to have the freedom to make their own decisions. If a true free market existed in health care, costs would be lower and more people would be covered by affordable health insurance.
