Phil Bryant Keeps Mississippi 50th

You have to hand it to Governor Phil Bryant. He works really hard keeping Mississippi on the bottom.

A review from the conservative Forbes magazine ranks Mississippi 50th in terms of being the best place for business in the United States.

Their reasons for ranking Mississippi where they did repeat what has been highlighted on this site and other economic reports for quite some time: poverty is holding us back. At the same time, Phil Bryant and the Republican Party have done nothing to show they care about the crippling poverty in our state. In Forbes' own words:

Phil Bryant gives away the store to his friends involved with the now-bankrupt KiOR plant, but he keeps turning a deaf ear to the struggles of Mississippians barely getting by. Phil Bryant and the Republicans will give a tax cut to the fat cats, but those benefits are not showing any positive growth for jobs in Mississippi. All we have to do is look at the numbers showing Mississippi still has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and that jobs are being lost in our state. Perhaps Phil Bryant needs to get out of the Governor's Mansion more often and talk with and work for ordinary folks that aren't his campaign donors.
