    Wow, a real gotcha moment, proud of yourself? Perry doesn't have an unemployment problem, he has a growing state, growing tax revenue, growing jobs that are making Obama's numbers better. Last I checked 8.4% is less than 9.1% unemployment and a net job gain is better than a net job loss. Tell the 3 million less employed today how great Obama is.

    Growing unemployment isn't a problem? How do Perry's rising unemployment numbers make Obama look better?

    Because 8.4% is lower than 9.1% and Perry's net job gain improves the total employment number. I would have thought someone of your intelligence would have understood that

    So using tax payers money to support business isn't a form of a nanny state for business?

    Perry's unemployment is below the national median.

    See, I think you've got it backwards. Perry's unemployment numbers would be even WORSE if he hadn't taken over $12 billion from Obama's stimulus program.

    By the way, with regard to that gotcha moment, suggest you review the actual numbers for Arizona and TX


    AZ

    5,130,632

    6,392,017

    1,261,385

    24.585%


    TX

    20,851,820

    25,145,561

    4,293,741

    20.592%

    Notice any difference in the amount of increase and the total population. TX has almost 4 times the population and 4 times the actual population growth making TX a much bigger state to manage than Arizona

    Now it is 12 billion? Before it was 6 billion. God forbid that the people of TX get some of their tax dollars back or are you one of those that believe the stimulus came out of the Obama "stash?"

    Don't worry, you can vote for Obama in 2012. He obviously is more of a candidate to give you what you want, the nanny state.

    So if Perry is doing a poor job at managing TX, how does he plan to manage the entire country? Trying to lure businesses from one state to another or doctors from one state to another is not going to do anything to improve things for the whole country.

    $6 billion was the most recent infusion to close the budget gap. It is over $12 billion total.

    "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."
