The Failed Phil Bryant Economy

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.
