Oh, you gotta love this:
Americans For Prosperity have a website that shows how dynamic nd growing the Texas economy is; which is a direct refutation to the Obama Administrations whining, mewling sad-sack songs about the rest of the economy:
Texas is one of a handful of states which are not facing a large budget deficit. Texans have been prudent in spending, and our economy has grown. Jobs have been created, and businesses are flocking to Texas!
Here are the top 10 ways Texas is No. 1:
* Lawsuit Reform (Tort Reform)
* Largest Electricity Market
* Balanced State Budget
* No State Income Tax
* Top Exporting State
* Top State for Business
* Most Fortune 500 Companies
* Most Job Creation
* Fastest-Growing State in the Country
And THIS tart little rejoinder:
The Obama Administration should look to Texas for ways to create jobs. While jobs aren’t created at job summits, businesses large and small look for certainty in taxation and regulation.
Instead, the Obama Administration and Congress are considering two of the biggest tax bills in history in the health care reform and the cap and trade legislation. And federal government debt has hit $12 trillion.
While Texas has created more jobs than any other state in the country, and touts creating more jobs last year than all other states combined, and has a rainy day fund of over $8 billion, officials in the Obama Administration will be convening a jobs summit.
We in Texas could have saved them the effort. Washington officials should look to Texas to see that tort reform, lower taxes, limiting government growth and debt, and common-sense regulations open the door to job creation.
