Republican Party of Florida Releases New TV Ad “Jobs”

Rick Scott Is Moving Florida Forward; Charlie Crist Would Take Us Back

Today, the Republican Party of Florida released a new TV ad, “Jobs.” The ad features Floridians sharing their views on Rick Scott’s commitment to job creation versus Charlie Crist’s record of economic failure.

STATEMENT FROM RPOF CHAIRMAN LESLIE DOUGHER: “Rick Scott’s singular focus on getting Floridians back to work has resulted in the creation of over 620,000 private-sector jobs and an economy that is one of the nation’s leading job creators. In contrast, four years ago Charlie Crist ran away and left Florida’s economy a complete mess. The choice is clear: we can’t go back.”

AD FACTS: “JOBS”

THE AD

MALE #1: Florida is creating some jobs.

MALE #2: Jobs right now, they’re coming back up.

THE FACTS

Since Rick Scott Took Office, Florida Has Created Over 620,000 Private-Sector Jobs. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 5/15/14)

  • In December 2010, Florida Had 6,101,100 Private-Sector Employees. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 7/28/14)
  • As Of June 2014, Florida Has 6,721,800 Private-Sector Employees. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 7/28/14)

THE AD

MALE #3: Governor Scott has done great things to help us move ahead.

MALE #4: This right here, what you see right here, is a small business. And Governor Scott has helped this business tremendously.

MALE #5: If you look at what he’s done over the last four years, why would you want to go back?

THE FACTS

Governor Scott Has Reduced Taxes For Job Creators.

  • In 2011, Governor Scott Increased Tax Exemption For Business Income From $5,000 To $25,000. “Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed a bill that will provide a $30 million cut in corporate-income taxes … HB7185 will increase the state’s corporate-income tax exemption from $5,000 to $25,000. That means companies with taxable income less than $25,000 will be exempt from corporate-income taxes – a change that Republicans said will help small businesses.” (“Scott Signs Corporate Tax Cut,” CBS 4 Miami, 6/25/11) 
  • In 2012, Governor Scott Doubled The Tax Exemption For Business Income From $25,000 To $50,000. “Gov. Rick Scott signed a series of measures designed to trim business taxes and slash regulations Wednesday … The change to the corporate tax exemption, which will now rise to $50,000 from $25,000, contributes to Scott’s goal of eliminating the tax entirely.” (Brandon Larrabee, “Gov. Rick Scott Signs Bills Cutting Business Taxes & Regulations,” The News Service Of Florida, 3/29/12)
  • In 2012, Governor Scott Reduces Productivity Requirement For Manufacturing Tax Exemption. “Currently manufacturers already enjoy a tax exemption on machinery they purchase, but only if the machinery helps improve productive output by 5 percent annually. In 2012, Scott and the Legislature cut the requirement for productive output from 10 percent to 5 percent, saving manufacturers an estimated $46 million per year.” (Toluse Olorunnipa, “Scott Floats New Tax Creak For Manufacturers,” The Miami Herald, 1/9/13) 
  • In 2013, Governor Passed Manufacturing Tax Break That Will “Provide Great Incentives To An Important Group Of Employers … Who Help Grow The Nation’s Middle Class.” “To improve Florida’s job picture, that needs to change. Growing the manufacturing base in the Sunshine State is one way to add jobs and diversify the state’s workforce. Gov. Rick Scott champions the proposed tax cut, which would remove sales taxes on manufacturing equipment. The proposal has legislative support. In the Florida Senate, Sen. Dorothy Hukill, R-Port Orange, is sponsoring the related SB 518… Legislators need to take the advice of Scott and Hukill, and pass this tax cut. It would provide great incentives to an important group of employers, manufacturers, who help grow the nation’s middle class.” (Editorial, “Extend Sales-Tax Relief For Florida Manufacturers,” The Daytona Beach News-Journal, 4/25/13)

Governor Scott Has Reduced Regulatory Burdens For Job Creators.

THE AD

FEMALE #1: Governor Crist was a governor that was not looking out for Florida.

THE FACTS

Former Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Today: “When Florida Really Needed Him To Guide The Ship Of State, He Voluntarily Jumped Overboard And Proudly Pronounced That He Wanted To Go To Washington, D.C.” (Barney Bishop, “Charlie Crist Is Nice Guy, But Can You Believe Him?” Context Florida, 11/22/13)

Lawton ‘Bud’ Chiles In Yesterday’s Orlando Sentinel: “Crist Walked Away From The Tough Challenges When He Was Governor In Order To Try To Take A Back Seat In The U.S. Senate.” (Lawton “Bud” Chiles, “Crist Is No Inspirational Pol Like JFK – My Word,” The Orlando Sentinel, 11/21/13)

Miami Herald Columnist Carl Hiaasen Says Crist Walked Away From “Hard Job At The Worst Time Just To Elevate His Career.” “After one term as governor, Crist left Tallahassee to run for the U.S. Senate in 2010. Back then Florida’s economy was gasping, as it was nationwide, and Crist looked like he was walking away from a hard job at the worst time just to elevate his career.” (Carl Hiaasen, “Charlie Crist Is Back, But He Doesn’t Deserve Free Pass,” The Miami Herald, 11/10/13) 

THE AD

MALE #6: Florida lost 800,000 jobs under Crist.

MALE #3: I think they will be a lot of businesses that move out of Florida and a lot of job loss if Charlie Crist comes back.
