REFORM FLORIDA AGENDA
MAKE TAXES FAIR & END POLITICAL FAVORITISM
Too often tax policy is dictated by political favoritism. When politicians pick winners and losers they hurt business owners and hardworking taxpayers. Florida needs fair and common sense policies to promote jobs and financial security for families and small businesses.
DON’T MAKE FINANCIAL PROMISES TAXPAYERS CAN’T KEEP
Florida’s state and local elected officials have been gambling with taxpayer dollars. They continue supporting unsustainable government programs, like Medicaid, defined-benefit public pension plans and Citizens Property Insurance, because they don’t want to tell us a truth we may not like hearing – these programs are financially unsound.
BE STEWARDS OF GOOD, TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT
Nearly sixty percent of Florida’s budget is spent on contracted services with non-government vendors and hundreds of millions are handed out as incentives and targeted-industry programs. The state is spending billions of taxpayer dollars each year for programs with little or no accountability. If a citizen wants to know how government is spending their tax dollars, it can be a real hassle, as the records that are available are scattered across multiple different sources and some are not available at all.
EMPOWER STUDENTS WITH THE BEST EDUCATION
Parents and students should be in control of their education, not bureaucrats or administrators. Florida has excellent opportunities available to students that don’t want to take the traditional public school path including public charter schools, virtual school, home school, and Tax Credit Scholarships.
FREE ENTREPRENEURS TO PURSUE THE AMERICAN DREAM
Government red tape and unnecessary regulations are stifling the entrepreneurial spirit and blocking job creation. Every Floridian deserves the chance to achieve their own personal success without government standing in the way.
