    It's hard to kick a field goal when the goal posts keep moving all over the field.

    I went to BLS.gov, and this is what I found:

    #16--Massachusetts: 7.6% unemployed
    #23--New York: 8.0% unemployed
    #27--Texas: 8.4% unemployed

    which coincides with what Politifact says:

    PolitiFact | One in four Texans lack health insurance

    "In June 2011, the Texas unemployment rate was 8.2 percent. That was less than unemployment in collapsed-bubble states like California and Florida, but it was slightly higher than the unemployment rate in New York, and significantly higher than the rate in Massachusetts. By the way, one in four Texans lacks health insurance, the highest proportion in the nation, thanks largely to the state’s small-government approach. Meanwhile, Massachusetts has near-universal coverage thanks to health reform very similar to the 'job-killing' Affordable Care Act."

    How come Texas has a higher unemployment rate than New York and especially Massachusetts?

    As if you are making more sense. lol

    Texas has the highest rate of unplanned pregnancy in the nation. That's why it's population is so high

    If conservative didn't make stuff up, they'd have nothing to say

    Get someone to read what I posted, explained them both. You apparently don't have the ability to remember what you posted or the responses received.

    Well I don't know if I'd go THAT far but it does contribute. So does immigration, though, both from other nations and other states. Don't have the numbers off the top of my head, though.

    You are shifting the goalposts all over the place. I don't even care which issue we debate, just PICK ONE already.

    NYS has high rates of immigration too. TX pop is exploding because republicans have no morals and make babies they cant fford to raise. That's why so many of them are on welfare and have such low incomes. NYS per capita income is much higher than TX

    NP. I'm cool with disagreeing, so long as it's a matter of opinion and not fact!

    Well...lemme take a look at the numbers.

    Demographics of Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    According to this, between the 2000 and 2010 censuses, Texas experienced:

    *1,948,398 births
    *663,161 foreign immigrants minus emigrants
    *218,722 domestic immigrants minus emigrants

    Note that since those are NET immigration numbers, one can't really draw conclusions from them. Lemme see if I can find strictly how many came into Texas...
