Florida Gov. Rick Scott might have a new catchphrase. If his March 5 State of the State address is any indication that phrase is: “It’s working.”
The governor gave his address as both the Florida House and Senate officially began their sessions.
"We eliminated thousands of regulations on job creators. We paid down state debt for two years in a row," The Tampa Tribune reported him as saying. "We invested in priorities – like education. And, now our economy is on the rebound. It's working."
Scott went on to defend his anti-tax and anti-spending policies. He also sent the message that his reforms have improved the state’s public schools.
Throughout the address, he repeated the phrase: “It’s working.”
