CT Dems statement on Jeb Bush’s Greenwich fund-raiser

ctdemsFULLFormer Florida Governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush is holding a campaign fundraiser tonight in Greenwich. Connecticut Democratic Party spokesman Leigh Appleby released the following statement.

“Because of Jeb Bush’s policies, income inequality exploded while he was Governor of Florida. Just like his brother, he signed massive tax breaks for the wealthy, large corporations, and special interests, while slashing investments in health care, job training, and social services. His record is a prime example of just how damaging Republican policies are for the middle class and working families.

“Jeb Bush’s policies are strikingly similar to those of his good friend, Tom Foley. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they both fold to the NRA and reject the notion that common sense gun control measures make our communities safer. They have both doubled down on failed trickle down economic policies. And neither of them believe that climate change is a real threat.

“I am confident that — come November 2016 – voters of this country will reject Jeb Bush and his dangerous right wing policies, just as Connecticut voters have twice rejected Tom Foley.”
