Mississippi requires prescription for over-the-counter drug

Today, Mississippi's Republican Gov. Haley Barbour - a longtime horse's ass - signed a new law requiring a prescription to buy over-the-counter pseudoephedrine cold and allergy drugs.

Mississippi joins Oregon in becoming only the second state with such a law.

This flies in the face of federal law - which says these drugs do not require a prescription. It also belies Barbour's lies about supporting smaller government.

And it will drive up the cost of health care, even as Congress refuses to fix America's broken medical system.

But that doesn't matter to a lying sack of shit like Haley Barbour.

  1. I'm sorry, but I have allergies and take Claritin D twice a day, every day, and Haley Barbour is an idiot. Disgusting meth addicts will continue to find a way to make their drugs no matter what, but those of us with legitimate needs for medication will now have to pay 40-75 dollars for a doctor visit, just to get medication that we have used daily for years. There's something wrong with this picture!!!
