Let's Get to Work On Rick Scott's Spin
Things are really bad in Florida when 11.1 percent unemployment is cause for celebration in Florida.
RICK SCOTT: We're clearly heading in the right direction, but we still have a long way to go because we still have over 1 million people out of work.
The lead economist for Agency for Workforce usually makes the announcement on unemployment numbers. Scott took it upon himself to make the announcement. Scott is really desperate for positive publicity. Apparently, Scott is figuring out that is poll numbers are bad.
During the campaign, Scott promised that tax cuts would create new jobs. The new budget has not been approved and there is a possibility that no major tax cuts will be in the budget. Scott is taking created for marginal job creation that he had nothing to do with.
