GETTING FLORIDA'S ECONOMY RESTARED
Fight to keep taxes low, maintain fiscal discipline and support policies that create a business climate where new and existing businesses can prosper. The private sector creates JOBS, not government.
ELIMINATE WASTEFUL GOVERNMENT SPENDING
Prioritize spending to focus on the core missions of government; public safety, education, protecting our children and seniors in need. We need smarter, smaller government.
Excellent teachers and disciplined classrooms, along with the involvement of parents is critical to improving Florida's schools. A larger percentage of education dollars needs to be spent in the classroom where it is most needed.
Crack down on document fraud, empower law enforcement to detain illegal immigrants and penalize businesses that knowingly employ them. Taxpayers already have a heavy burden without having to pay the extra cost associated with illegal immigration.
The fastest and best way for new technologies and industries to emerge is by the free market. When appropriate, government should partner with private industry to speed the development of renewable energy. Florida needs to be a leader in energy independence.
