    What anti-business polices/programs would those be?

    Why would they expand hiring if they are doing more with less now? They are expanding in market share without having to expand in size.

If a business is not hiring people right now because of Obamacare its not because it will cost them to much to employ that person. It is because they don't know how much hiring a person now is going to cost them because they don't know if Obamacare will actually be upheld in the courts.

    Health care costs could easily go down, both those paid by the people and those paid by the government to help make up for those who can't pay by having an actual NHS, not a national health insurance system.
    Until you get illegals under control and interject competition, costs aren't going down. Govt. drives up costs as well with regulations. Any idea how long it takes drugs to be approved by the FDA? Free enterprise and competition will always drive down costs.

    The cost of hiring people and payroll are the largest expense a business has and govt. regulations and taxes drive up those costs.

    Which would be? Also, Obamacare doesn't kill jobs, well not in the sense you think it does. If a business is not hiring people right now because of Obamacare its not because it will cost them to much to employ that person. It is because they don't know how much hiring a person now is going to cost them because they don't know if Obamacare will actually be upheld in the courts.
    The threat of Obamacare is of concern to small businesses and will drive up costs. Hiring will not take place until the ruling on that law.

    And as soon as a ruling is made, regardless of how it is made, businesses will know how being in business will cost them. BTW, small businesses are exempt from Obamacare's business mandate.

    Let me also remind you, my county had 600,000 spent on illegal's use of the ER in my county alone. Healthcare costs aren't going down until the Federal Govt. gets illegal immigration under control
    So you think its right that Texas limits the amount of overall money a person can sue for if a DR messes up. So if a DR messes up and the medical bills to fix the mistake total to over the cap of 300,000 then well you, the victim, is SOL. Tort-reform is more than limiting punitive damages, its limiting corporate liability even its their fault. It removes the only way to punish the corporation for breaking the law.

    A sure sign of its bias is that it puts NY at #45 while many of the worlds largest and most important corps disagree
    Why do you think teen pregnancy would affect whether a business wants to do business in a state?

    Besides that, many of the subcategories do take things like unemployment and poverty into account. I'm pretty sure those things would be factored into the quality of life and economy categories.

    Do you have a better rating of states, that include those things you mentioned? This is the one that pops up top of a search for "top states to do business in". Well along with the Chief Executives website, which actually puts TX at the top of the list.

    Of course, Forbes also has a list, which has TX in 4th place.

    In order for the same to happen on a national scale, the US GOV would have to make it cheaper to move entire plants from overseas than it would be to keep them in operation over there. You really need to look up more about tort reform. Its not as wonderful as you think it is.
