Pence’s Economy is “Fuzzy Math” Compared to Real Hoosier Economy

INDIANAPOLIS – Mike Pence believes Indiana has recovered from its “difficult week” and the $250 million economic panic he caused the state when he signed RFRA into law. Governor Pence is so convinced, in fact, that his administration and the IEDC recently used a CNBC article as a reason to abruptly sever its contract to restore Indiana’s reputation with Porter Novelli. While it’s still to be determined what good this taxpayer-funded contract did for Indiana, the article Mike Pence used to justify this kneejerk move has some fuzzy math and exposes the overall transparency problem he has with hardworking Hoosiers.

“Mike Pence’s economy needs a bit of PR help if he wants to convince Hoosiers the state’s economy is ‘on the horizon’ of historic employment levels. In fact, the state is as divided as ever and middle class families don’t feel this ‘momentum’ in their pocketbooks,” said John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party. “From ranking 44th in the nation for economic growth last year to Hoosiers making 86 cents to every one American dollar, the hardworking Hoosier is falling behind the rest of the nation. You can be the best state for doing business, but if you rank among the worst in workforce and quality of life, even fuzzy math can’t sell it as ‘success.’ Mike Pence needs to own up to this mess and start solving today’s problems for the everyday Indiana family.”
