Stacey Abrams on Budget & Economy

 

 


FactCheck: Tax bill might be "rigged" but economy doing well

Stacey Abrams, former candidate for Georgia governor, in the Democratic response to Trump's speech, said: "The Republican tax bill rigged the system against working people. Rather than bringing back jobs, plants are closing, layoffs are looming and wages struggle to keep pace with the actual cost of living.

THE FACTS: The economy is doing better after the introduction of the Trump administration's tax cuts than Abrams suggests. The number of people seeking unemployment benefits, a proxy for layoffs, briefly fell to a five-decade low last month. And average hourly pay is running ahead of inflation.

Invest in community businesses

Small businesses employ more Georgians, and they can be started anywhere. As Governor, she will direct more economic development dollars to hometown businesses. Funds will be targeted to reach low-income communities and rural counties, and we will help Georgia businesses expand by offering access to capital.
