Regarding Governor Scott’s proposed budget:Governor Scott has proposed a bold “Jobs Budget” to get Floridians back to work. By relying on the free enterprise system while promoting personal responsibility, the Governor understands that government has nothing to give except what it first must take from someone else. He is willing to make the difficult but important choices that have been put on hold for far too long. This budget allows American ingenuity and the free market to flourish by cutting taxes, cutting spending and reducing the regulatory burden that all Floridians feel every single day. The entrepreneurial spirit, so often seen throughout Florida’s history, will thrive again when government gets out of the way.Dr. Robert McClure
