PolitiFact Florida checks out Rick Scott's claim of 24 tax cuts

The latest over at PolitiFact Florida:

How many times did Gov. Rick Scott cut taxes? You better believe the unpopular Republican running for a second term is counting the ways.

"Twenty-four times," Scott said last month after signing the state’s $71.1 billion budget.

Could Scott and the Legislature have enacted two dozen different tax cuts in just three budget years, two of which were hamstrung by billion-dollar budget shortfalls? PolitiFact Florida turned to the Truth-O-Meter to sort it out.

Read why PolitiFact Florida rated his statement Half True.
