Top EPA official resigns after ‘crucify’ comment | Fox News.

Comment: Resignation is not good enough. The Environmental Protection Agency’s policies led by Lisa Jackson are “crucifying” energy companies. Mr. Armendariz’ resignation and apology are understated. He resigned to protect his career; he apologized inappropriately by saving face rather than by saving American taxpayer money (and recovering it) and excused himself for it. He wasted American taxpayer money (period).

Governor Scott Works to Improve

Florida Education

Recently, I signed legislation that increases funding to Florida schools by $1 billion. During the past few weeks, I have spent time listening to teachers, parents and students about the best ways we can improve Florida’s education system. As Governor, it is my job to ensure that money from taxpayers is invested so that Florida’s children receive the best possible education.

One way the Florida Department of Education is doing this is by ranking the performance of Florida’s schools. Now, schools in our state can better understand how they compare to other Florida schools. Also, taxpayers will know exactly what they are getting for their money.

It is important to continue to set goals and monitor schools to ensure that they achieve success. I will continue to listen to Floridians about additional ways we can implement this funding. By doing this, we can ensure that your tax dollars are being invested properly and that Florida’s students are given every opportunity to succeed.

Governor Scott’s Weekly Radio Address


May is right around the corner and with that comes the end of another school year. With summer fast approaching, First Lady Ann Scott encourages students to continue reading and to stay healthy and active over the break. Mrs. Scott believes that if you are an active reader, then you will always be an active learner, which is a valuable skill for children and adults alike.

Summer reading and book discussions will help maintain and improve reading skills, as well as provide the opportunity to increase vocabulary and learn new concepts. Most importantly, when families read together, it creates a love of books and learning that lasts a lifetime.

Summer reading can significantly impact a student’s long-term success in school, and the First Lady encourages Florida families to practice good reading habits throughout summer vacation.

This past week Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll sat down for an extended interview with Capital Dateline. She discussed several important policy issues, including Governor Scott’s appointing her to be Chair of the new Citizen Safety and Protection Task Force. She also spoke in depth about her role as Chair of Space Florida and her oversight of Florida agencies, including the Departments of Military Affairs and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

It is not a “bad” thing to be poor and “young.” Yet, the U.S. Media uses the “poor” and “young” to bring more government programs into existence than ever before in American history. If the U.S. Media took the position that the “poor” flourishes in the life-invigorating model of service and truth, then the philosophy of being poor changes outstandingly. If the U.S. Media promoted the position that American youth rejuvenate the nature of human life and ideals in self-gift and self-truth, then the existence of being young remains forever.

What the U.S. Media strives to achieve in success and in wealth is to use and abuse the poor and young. With its élite goals of liberalism, including elements of socialism, communism and wealth; it recreates systemic government structures as history churns in the modern era, not for the poor and young – but for itself, the U.S Media élite. One would say that the…

11 Months of Job Creation

Dear friend,

Florida is getting back to work! Last Friday the new unemployment numbers were announced, and they showed that our state has had 11 consecutive months of job growth. Now I am happy to report that unemployment is at a 3 year low!

These job growth trends are a result of our reducing regulation, easing the tax burden on small businesses and delivering two consecutive balanced state budgets without tax increases.


To ensure our job growth continues, I signed my 2012 Job Creation and Economic Growth Agenda into law. The passage of my jobs agenda is a tremendous victory for Florida’s families and businesses and will ensure private-sector jobs can continue to grow. My jobs package, combined with an additional $1 billion for K-12 education, will have an important impact on all Floridians, and I thank the Florida Legislature for recognizing the valuable contributions this legislation will make toward growing businesses and jobs in our state.

Will you help spread the news that Florida is getting back to work? Here are three ways you can help:
