    The plant in Carolina is a NEW Plant, that isn't luring business from one state to another.

    Luring business from one state to another won't happen with a relaxing of regulations,elimination of Obamacare, and assuring businesses that their taxes aren't going up. What you forget is that businesses are going to pay the federal taxes but are going to move to states with lower state taxes to offset it. TX isn't the only one.

    Baby boomers retiring isn't about discouraged workers, it's about the size of the workforce. You were complaining that the workforce under Obama has shrunk and retiring baby boomers is the main reason why. This has been brought to your attention before, it's not new inofrmation.

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."

    PolitiFact Texas | President Obama says Gov. Perry used stimulus fund to help balance budget, then started 'blaming' federal lawmakers who voted for legislation
    Wasn't highway and bridge construction, child care development, and weatherization part of the stimulus program that Obama promoted? Keep moving that goalpost Adam. So now that is counted in the TX budget? Were those items in the TX budget before? Unbelievable. Nothing is going to change your mind so this is a waste of time.

    That's true, and Texas also has the weak governor system, so Perry has less responsiblity than any other governor in the country. Thought we'd have learned that lesson by now.

    I didn't say the full $12 billion was counted in the budget. Try to read what you're responding to before you post.

    Bull****, the retiring babyboomers aren't the problem for the labor force, it is about Obama economy not creating enough jobs. We are seeing over 400,000 per month seeking first time unemployment benefits and that has been going on for months. that isn't a declining labor force that is a failure of an economic policy to stimulate job creation. When the SC rules against Obamacare and a Republican wins the WH that will change.

    Has there been a net job gain since Obama took office?
    You're bring up bush* again

    Are there more jobs available today than when he took office?
    You're bring up bush* again

    Is the misery index today the same or lower than it was when he took office?
    You're bring up bush* again

    Has he halved the deficit like he promised by the end of his first term as promised?
    You're bring up bush* again

    Is the unemployment rate after the stimulus spending 8% or less?
    You're bring up bush* again

    Are the number of discouraged workers less than when he took office?
    You're bring up bush* again

    RIsing unemployment? No problem!!!
