For All Mississippi

It was my greatest honor to be sworn in as Mississippi’s 65th Governor on January 14, 2020.

Standing before all of Mississippi, I promised that this administration would be an administration for all Mississippi. That I would defend the loving culture that underpins our quality of life and work to grow an economy that lifts all of our families. I am determined to honor that promise.

I am asking today for you to join me in that mission. We must care about each other enough to overcome our differences. We must be faithful to each other enough to outlast our shortcomings. And we must be committed to each other enough to raise our expectations.

When I took that first oath of office as State Treasurer in 2003, I did not know how long my service would last. All I knew is that you, the people of Mississippi, had demonstrated a faith in me that I might never be able to meet.

I have never underestimated your trust. I have never forgotten the oath to pursue service with the help of our God. And I will wake up every day working to bring us together to make our state be all it can be. Work that will be done by all of Mississippi.

After House votes this week for Obamacare Medicaid Expansion, radical far left professor asks,

“Did we turn MS blue and just not know it?”

It’s a fair question.

Remember this guy? He is the nutty professor at Ole Miss who made headlines for saying young Trump supporters are the same as Hitler youth. And he seems thrilled with the legislature’s priorities this year.

Please talk to your State Senator and Representatives.

Tell them (politely and pointedly) -

I am a conservative.
I stand with Trump.
Say no to Joe Biden.
Say no to Obamacare Medicaid Expansion.
Say NO to turning Mississippi BLUE!

Yes Medicaid needs to be expanded and if trump did a crime he should have to do the time or sentencing that any other regular citizen would have to do .

Dude! I’m trying to teach my CHILDREN to quit worrying about what other people think about them, and the Governor of our state is whining about what a professor at Ole Miss thinks! No wonder we’re last in everything!

When Brandon Presley was running against you because hospitals were closing, you suddenly found the money to bail out the hospitals directly. Why not fund Medicaid expansion and let the hospitals receive that money through people who need the services?

Vote every rep and senator out that votes for this! It’s time for personal responsibility in our states and country.

I wonder how much these communist/socialist people who bash Mississippi & our Governor gets paid to do so!

Thank you Governor!

He is preparing himself to be on the National Republican stage when he leaves Mississippi. He care more about that than he does citizens here. He wants to be the next conservative far right national leader.

I have respect for you. But this is one issue I cannot agree with you. Let’s take care of the people, no matter what.

Many people have such strong opinions on expansion who have zero idea of the costs associated, who expansion even applies to, or what the actual benefits might be.

The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life,the children,those who are in the twilight of life,the aged, and those in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped. Hubert H. Humphrey

I voted for you, yet you are wrong on the Medicaid expansion. Many working class families don’t make enough to afford healthcare yet make too much to get help from the ACA. Mississippi has made great strides in education and it’s time to make those same strides in caring for her citizens. Medicaid expansion is good for the hospitals and good for the citizens. I absolutely abhor the thought of a blue Mississippi, but when it comes to this, if you truly represent red, maybe blue isn’t as bad as it seems.

They need to be helping the senior citizens who has worked their entire life and now can’t afford medicine and grocery. Why do they forget them all the time????

Governor, if you don’t believe in “expanding the welfare state,” reject ALL federal funding. Then watch the fallout. Mississippi is queen of the welfare states. Expanding Medicaid will help Mississippians and save lives, but honestly, that isn’t important to you.

Not surprised.

Buying Liquor on Sunday has nothing to do with this. Bright Red. I like to drink. Hell yeah. And stay out of my business.

I bet many in this state wish they had said NO to Tate!

No to Medicaid? Some governor you are ...

Do you know the term “veto”, Tate?

Tate Reeves it's the way you simp for a criminal for me. It's disgusting and shameful.

😂

So Tate Reeves you don’t want other people to have insurance like we provide for you and your family? You don’t want more funding for our public schools? And really does it matter what day of the week you buy your alcohol if you drink it on Sunday? How about as governor you stop with the red and blue rhetoric and promote a nice shade of purple?

#TATERTOT WHY DO YOU WANT TO TAKE HEALTHCARE AWAY FROM THE POOREST PEOPLE IN THE STATE WHO ARE MOSTLY REPUBLICANS? ARE THEY SO STUPID THEY DON'T REALIZE THAT'LL IT'LL BE THEM THAT LOSES THEIR HEALTHCARE?

I am a center-right conservative. If Trump is convicted of a felony, he needs to be in jail and barred for LIFE from running for president. I’m saying no to Joe Biden, only because his age is causing cognitive decline. Medicaid SHOULD be expanded to those who really need it. I had back surgery completely paid for in Arizona because I was in the Medicaid program, and I dropped it after I was better. There needs to be access to Medicaid for all! Mississippi turning blue?! Never gonna happen! Stop the stupid warnings.

Well Tate Reeves you and whatever AG you got aren't pursuing biden charges or ballot removal. The house has passed gun measures that are already illegal federally. And the state isn't enforcing Marijuana as a class I controlled substance under the DEA. So yeah, mississippi is a blue sanctuary state that spends ridiculous money per student for mediocre results and no school choice or tax rebates for homeschooling.

It sounds like the idiot governor is in a cult.

If you cared about children you would know that Sunday is for Church and spending time with family...not drinking liquor. I guess that shows what the Mississippi Republican Party cares about and I have no association with it. I'm a Christian. Maybe you should be. ✝️⛪

"publicity tour for her book that's paid for by the taxpayer. $10,000 from head start for the publishing and all expenses for promotion paid for by the taxpayer . " Be more honest Tate Reeves

According to Mississippi today Quote, Behind First Lady Reeves’ “Fred the Turtle” is a little-known religious welfare initiative slowly receiving public funding As part of her stated mission to improve child development, Gov. Tate Reeves’ wife Elee Reeves wrote a children’s book about a turtle named Fred. The governor’s office then quietly gave $10,000 in federal Head Start funds to a new nonprofit called Hope Rising Mississippi, launched by some of the same members of a failed former child welfare initiative, to pay for printing thousands of copies of the book. Interesting article for sure.

When you look at recent history, it becomes clear that this downward spiral in our political life started when Ronald Reagan went to Philadelphia. Mississippi to announce his candidacy for President. In his speech he railed on about "welfare queens" as the problem. The relevance to going to Philadelphia MS to announce his candidacy should not be ignored. Philadelphia in June 1964 was the scene of the murders of civil rights workers James Chaney, a 21-year-old black man from Meridian, Mississippi; Andrew Goodman, a 20-year-old Jewish anthropology student from New York City; and Michael Schwerner, a 24-year-old Jewish CORE organizer and former social worker, also from New York. Their deaths demonstrated the risks that civil rights workers took to secure the constitutional rights of African Americans.

MAGA!!

we do not need her teaching them you and your goonie's crap .do not need them to be like you .

I’m surprised she’s not reading them her turtle book that she used headstart funds from to write from the poor children and families of this state. Like husband, like wife… the worst family in America!

But yet you cut the kids lunches and you only fund the private privileged schools instead of public schools. Mississippi and our plum ignorant forgiven this moron, another four years.

Did we spend any TANF money on those books?

Maybe work on adult literacy and media literacy. It will cost you votes and maybe your office but at least your doing something useful as just posing for photo ops

This empty gesture wont stop declining graduation rates or closing down public universities due to declining enrollement. Both of my sources from tates own mouth and a state lawmaker who is on record stating this

Coming from a book banner and insisting on white supremacy being taught (historical revisonism) this is laughably empty

Prioritizing investments in infrastructure and expanding the availability of project-ready sites will help our state win even more record-shattering private sector investment.

Today, we’re investing nearly $1 million towards site development projects throughout Mississippi.
...

Representative McGee keeps saying - over and over - that her bill is for working people.

The truth is this: her bill passed by the House committee yesterday is straight Obamacare Medicaid Expansion.

Applies to as many as 300,000 able-bodied adults who could work but may choose not to…

And there is NO (real) work requirement.

And - on Day 1 - 145,000 people will be moved from private insurance plans to government health care.

HB1725 is EXACTLY like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama intended it to be written when they passed Obamacare.  

More free stuff for everyone - except for taxpayers…

who get to pay for it all!!
