Rick Scott: Obama Jobs Speech Should Give States More Autonomy

September 5, 2011 - 6:00pm

Gov. Rick Scott said President Obama's pending jobs speech should give more autonomy to the states and focus on reducing taxes and regulations.

Look, bigger government hasnt worked, more taxes hasnt worked, more regulation hasnt worked, so we got to change course, Scott responded Tuesday when asked about the president's upcoming address.

If we want more business in America, we want more companies to come to America, we have to reduce our taxes,"Scott said. "We have to have logical regulations, but were not going to regulate everything. We have to give more autonomy to the states and let them be the laboratories they were supposed to be.

Obama is scheduled to deliver a speech on employment before Congress on Thursday.

The speech comes as separate polls by ABC News/Washington Post and NBC/Wall Street Journal place the presidents approval ratings at 43 percent and 44 percent respectively.
