DPG Chair Statement on GOP Debate
Atlanta, GA – Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter issued the following statement in response to tonight’s GOP debate in Ohio.
“It’s astonishing that seventeen candidates on two separate stages speaking for three hours can still result in the same failed ideas we’ve heard from the GOP for decades. If any one of these folks were elected president, our economy and middle class would suffer—and possibly crumble—under top-down economics, voucher-style benefit programs, an unregulated financial system, and a health care system where you can be penalized or go bankrupt just because you got sick.
“No matter who emerges from the Democratic primary, our Party will build on the successes of the Obama administration and continue to grow the middle class and fight for those aspiring to join it.”
