The Scott Bruun Plan for the Economy: Return to the Same Failed Policies That Caused the Economic Do

The Scott Bruun Plan for the Economy: Return to the Same Failed Policies That Caused the Economic Downturn

 

Just a few months into a competitive Republican primary, Scott Bruun is making his economic policy clear.  It’s clear that Bruun supports the very same failed Bush economic policies that led to the largest economic downturn since the Great Depression.

 

“In endorsing the Bush economic policies that put our economy in this mess in the first place, Scott Bruun made it clear that he stands with Wall Street and big banks over families on Main Street,” said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  “As Oregonians dig out of the economic downturn, now is the time to turn the page, not go back.”
