Florida, the third-largest state in America, is currently growing at the seventh-fastest rate, according to government reports.

Before he was the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott was many things and, earlier this month, we were made aware of these accomplishments. On January 4 of this year, the anniversary of his step into the office, there was a special on DirecTV talking about his early life.
Born on December 1, 1952 in Kansas, his aspirations were far from political. When he was old enough he joined the United States Navy where he served for almost three years as a Petty officer, third class aboard the USS Glover.
During his tour of duty, he served as a radar technician until he felt like it was his time to leave the service behind and pursue a career in business. He attended college taking advantage of the GI Bill and graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
From there, he spent a few years kicking around handling fraud cases, doing some venture capitalist work and even working for Solantic before he found his way into politics.
It was there that, on January 4, 2011, incumbent Richard Lynn Scott assumed the office as the 45th Governor of Florida. Ever since assuming office, Rick has applied the same gumption and hard work he demonstrated in his early life to the position of governor and it clearly shows.

It is very clear that any member of the American government will promise lower taxes, but the reality is that the country as a whole cannot survive if taxes continue to fall while the unemployment rate is at all-time highs. Rick Scott is making efforts to curtail the problem of Florida’s high unemployment rate, which would aid in lowering taxes because the more people that are working the more tax revenues will be. Governor Scott has made progress by reducing Florida’s unemployment rate by 2.3 which placed (more…)
