Scott’s ‘Axis of Unemployment’ catches on

by Dara Kam | January 5th, 2011

Gov. Rick Scott‘s characterization of taxes, regulation and litigation as the “axis of unemployment” during his inaugural speech yesterday is destined to become a familiar mantra for fellow Republicans as they embrace his pro-business agenda.

It didn’t take long for Rep. Matt Hudson to latch onto the catchphrase to pitch his latest bill resurrecting legislation vetoed by Gov. Charlie Crist last year.

Hudson, a fellow Republican who hails from Scott’s Naples hometown, filed the bill (HB 119) that would “reduce, streamline and clarify regulations” for providers overseen by the Agency for Health Care Administration, according to a press release issued by Hudson’s office.

“HB 119 will be essential in fighting the axis of unemployment and ensuring that the tax dollars of Florida’s citizens are not being wasted,” Hudson said in the statement.

    GIVEME A BREAK!Stop with the stupid slogans and do the job. I am tired of hearing from Scott,”Lets Get To Work.”
    Now, we have “Axis of Unemployment.” Stop talking the talk and walk the walk.
    The public isn’t interested in the Slogans-we are interested in getting jobs. I’ll give Scott the benefit of the doubt because he was just sworn in, but if he talks and does nothing to improve the economy down here-the revolving door will be hitting him on the A$$ in four yrs. O.h. the party last night-for his Inauguration was in very poor taste even though big corporations foot the bill. With this economy-throwing a party like that in people’s faces was down-right low. I see
    where this jerk is headed already. Thank
    heavens he didn’t get my vote. I’m watching you Scott and I have very low
    confidence in your abilities-I hope you prove me wrong.

    If this criminal wasn’t rich he’d be rightfully behind bars right now. If you thought Florida was going down the tubes before….stay tuned.

    What did he ‘criminally’ do wrong? He never was charged nor went to jail. He has some great ideas that the Legislature will implement to jump start our economy.
    FL’s climate has been declining due to do-nothing Crist with his pandering to Democrats.

    Really?? And who in the hell do you think has been running this state for over a decade? Hmmm…your republicans maybe????!!!! And hello the legislature overrode several of Crist’s vetos in November so who…again…has ultimate power since they’ve got the numbers?? Hmmm…your republicans maybe??!!!

  6. Scott is a Crook Says:

    The real Axis of unemployment was under-regulated Wall Street Banks, the GOP, and the Housing Bubble.
    Rick Scott will introduce a new era of social irresponsibility in an effort to attract predatory firms to Florida to take advantage of scaled back regulation put in place to protect Floridians, mmm Like HCA.

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!
