Statement from RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry on Governor Rick Scott’s Speech at AFP “Defending the Dream Summit” and Misguided Attacks from Florida Democrats
“The results of Rick Scott’s pro-jobs, pro-growth policies of lowering taxes, reducing regulations and streamlining government bureaucracy over the past two and a half years are clear: the second largest drop in unemployment out of all 50 states, nearly 370,000 private-sector jobs created and an economy that’s made a tremendous turnaround. Now Rick Scott is keeping his laser-focus on jobs and Florida’s middle class, by proposing to reduce taxes and fees by half a billion dollars next year.
“On this Labor Day weekend, by attacking Rick Scott and his proposal to cut taxes and fees, Allison Tant and the Florida Democratic Party are now on the record as being against what working Floridians want: a lower cost of living and an economy that produces good jobs. This further proves that Florida Democrats not only lack a positive agenda to articulate to Floridians; they take the extreme position of being against tax relief that will help Florida’s economy grow and thrive.”
