The Phil Bryant economy continues to drag Mississippi down. Reports out this afternoon show Mississippi's unemployment rate to now be the country's highest - now at 7.9 percent. This now means over 100,000 Mississippians are out of a job.
We should point out that unemployment in Mississippi has been over seven percent for the entirety of the Bryant terms as governor at lieutenant governor. For all the Republican hot air about being pro-business, the government handouts they give to their friends do not seem to be paying off. Either these are very bad returns on investment, the Republicans do not have any idea what they're doing, or both.
