Barbour: Government's money is the people's

As promised, the transcript of Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour's State of the State speech. Nuts and bolts.


"Only the private sector creates wealth; the government doesn't do that. It can't. In fact, government has no money except the money it takes from our people and their businesses.

We need to be particularly aware of that fact in tough economic times like these: Government has no money except what it takes from our people and their businesses."
