"As a candidate, Rick Scott ran on the promise to get Floridians back to work and now, as governor, he's delivering. Under his leadership, Florida has started to see increases in job creation and economic growth. Thanks to the common sense, pro-growth policies put in place by the governor and Republican leaders in the Legislature, Florida's unemployment rate has continued to decline for 11 straight months as businesses begin to hire again and Floridians get back to work. It now sits at 8.6 percent — the lowest we've seen since December 2008. What Florida needs now is a national partner in the White House who will help fight overregulation, reduce the tax burden on families and small businesses and stop outrageous deficit spending.
"The economy will be the No. 1 issue for Americans this election, and President Obama can't run from his dismal economic record. After three years, Obama's policies have failed to live up to his promises — unemployment has remained too high for too long and our economy is struggling to recover. America needs a president like Mitt Romney who understands that government doesn't create jobs — the free enterprise system does. That system has lifted more people out of poverty than any government program, and that's what will get our nation back on the path to prosperity. It’s working for Florida, and our state could serve as a model for the nation."
