    Sorry, you are wrong about what caused the decline of real income – lowing tax rates for the wealthy can’t possibly make poor people make less money, but massive inflation certainly can.

    Where is your source saying that the $6 billion TX took went only to federal mandates?

    But to answer your question, yes, I think the citizens of TX should pay for the benefits they receive, just like the citizens of every other state. When Texans start tearing up their social security checks and stop using Medicare, then we can talk about rebates.

    Its what time and again people like Con fail to recogonize. They love to spout off the hyperbole but have no idea on how to actually get results.

    You are partially correct. It was a combination of a number of factors, including NAFTA for which Bill Clinton is largely responsible. However, a big part of it is the restructuring of the tax system under Reagan which cut the tax rate of many of the wealthiest Americans in half.

    How about posting your mailing address so I can pay for your healthcare as well. I am going to pay for Disneydudes so why not yours?

    Federal Mandates have to be funded by Federal taxdollars as signed by Bill Clinton in the mid 90's.

    By the way when you get a job you will be contributing to SS and Medicare. When you turn 65 refuse to get your money back.

    Don't you just love the Obama results that only cost over a trillion to generate

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 38% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    How about actually answering a question instead of going off on your idiotic personal attacks.

    Where is your evidence that all of the stimulus money went to pay for federal mandates? Why do you think Texans deserve to get federal benefits without paying for them -- unlike other states?

    Here is where the stimulus money that Perry took ACTUALLY went:

    "Abrams, asked for backup for the president’s statement, pointed us to the National Conference of State Legislatures, which in turn sent us its July 2009 report on state budgets. According to the report, state budget-writing Texas lawmakers in 2009 were short $6.6 billion in revenue for 2010-11 and relied heavily on stimulus funds for a solution.

    We did our own budget research, finding that lawmakers agreed to spend $80.6 billion in state general revenue on basic expenses over the two-year period, according to a report by the Legislative Budget Board, which advises lawmakers on budgetary matters.

    However, the stimulus aid let legislators put an additional $6.4 billion toward programs, primarily Medicaid and education, historically financed with general revenue, according to a July 2009 House Research Organization report. Another $5.7 billion in stimulus money went to programs such as highway and bridge construction, child care development programs and weatherization assistance.

    Counting all funding sources, including the $12.1 billion in stimulus aid, the 2010-11 state budget totaled $182 billion."

    I sure love the results in relation to what Bush left him:

    And what Obama inherited: economy shedding 700,000+ jobs per month, GDP shrinking at 6+% per year, financial institutions teetering on the edge of collapse, trillion+ deficit.... Nice improvement.
