Governor Phil Bryant is out with his latest ad touting his economic record. Don't let Phil Bryant keep lying to you. The Phil Bryant Economy has been a disaster.
On Phil Bryant's watch, there are over 22,000 fewer Mississippians with a job than there were when Phil Bryant and the Republicans took control of state government. In fact, the state's economist has noted the Mississippi's economy went into a recession in 2013 and 2014 and sluggish economic output is projected for 2015. This has been a trend; under the Phil Bryant Economy, most economic reports point to weak economic growth on top of the state's recession. This comes at a time when reports show that the the Phil Bryant Economy is coming up $30 million short of its budget projections while suffering from one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.
While Phil Bryant and the Republicans talk a big game about the state's economy, remember where they have led and kept the state: at the bottom. Mississippi deserves better than the failed Phil Bryant Economy.
