His Ads say he's going to:

1. Cut Property taxes
2. Cut state taxes
3. Do away with all business taxes
4. Cut out 25 percent of state employees
5. Create 700,000 jobs
6. and dozens of other ridiculous promises.
.

.His name is Rick Scott (I call him a crook and a Liar)..Here's his past >>
FORT MYERS (2010-6-18) - Two whistleblowers say the new front-runner in the Republican race for governor is lying when he says he did not know about fraud in his former company, the Columbia/HCA hospital chain.

In July 1997, FBI agents raided Columbia/HCA accounting offices in seven states, including Florida. Within days, Columbias board of directors ousted Scott, but gave him a nearly $10 million severance package, including stock shares worth $300 million and a $1 million a year consulting contract.

The company wound up paying more than $1.7 billion for defrauding the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs
The LARGEST defraud ever.

And this fucker is ahead in the Polls. :banghead:

He's about to bathe in a whole lot of hot water.

2. Reagan said that he would simultaneously...
1) Reduce taxes
2) Increase the military budget, and
3) Reduce the deficit.

America was math-challenged enough to buy that.

Of course, major fail on #3. But that's been so overshadowed by the deficit spending in the last two admins that it seems like nothing now.
