Jobs & the Economy

While we’ve helped turn Florida’s economy around, the overall U.S. economic picture is anemic. No economy can survive, much less thrive, with anemic growth – which is what we have been experiencing in the past few months under the heavily regulated oversight of Washington, D.C.

I will follow the Florida playbook in the U.S. Senate, from which we helped create an environment that led to over one million new Florida jobs in recent years, to catapult the economy forward. As I proved in Florida, we can reinvigorate the American Dream by unleashing small businesses from excessive regulations, reforming the corporate tax code, cutting taxes for all Americans, and creating more high-paying jobs. It begins by realizing that job creation and economic prosperity starts in Florida, not in Washington. Florida is succeeding despite Washington, D.C., not because of it.

In Florida, we have worked tirelessly to restore jobs and improve our economy because I know how important it is.
