Video: Senator Detert on Rick Scott’s “Corporate Giveaways”

We’ve extensively discussed Governor Scott’s flawed logic in pushing for manufacturing tax breaks and the success states like Alabama have had while Florida has flopped in seeking similar jobs.  We have also pointed out how corporate tax breaks pushed by Jeb Bush, Charlie Crist and now Scott have done little to attract new investment in Florida.

Well Senator Nancy Detert, the hero of the parent trigger fight yesterday and a longtime pragmatic moderate (I am old enough to remember when Detert ran for the House as a Democrat and was active politically when she was first elected as a centrist Republican in a tough primary) has her opinions of the tax breaks which she articulated several weeks ago. Thanks to Amy Ritter and Florida Watch Action for this video.
