Statement from Governor Rick Scott on Failed Deficit Reduction Talks

11/21/2011 Tallahassee, Fla. — “It is unfortunate that after months of debate the congressional “super committee” charged with finding $1.2 trillion in budget savings failed to make the difficult choices needed to begin fixing our nation’s out of control debt. This news, coupled with the recent failure of the U.S. House of Representatives to pass a federal balanced budget amendment, should cause all Americans to be concerned about the direction our country is heading. As a new grandfather, I am deeply disturbed by the $15 trillion bill we will leave behind for our grandchildren if nothing is done to curb spending in Washington. Congress and the President need only look to the states to find ways to get spending under control in order to help create opportunities for jobs and economic growth for all Americans and generations to come.”
