> “Time and time again Governor Bryant has put partisan politics over the well-being of the state of Mississippi. This year is clearly no different.
>
>
>
> “Bryant’s administration continues to push reckless policies that cut taxes for big corporations, but then turns around and demands spending cuts to our already underfunded public schools, universities, and community colleges. This type of failed leadership has driven Mississippi’s finances into the ditch and left middle class families struggling to get by.
>
>
>
> “Governor Bryant has chosen to advocate for policies that benefit out-of-state corporations and campaign contributors instead of pushing for policies that will improve the lives of all Mississippians. With one of the highest unemployment rates in that nation, a crumbling infrastructure, and an underfunded public education system, Mississippians need more than empty rhetoric. Mississippians need progress.”
