    I'd say criminal in its own right.

    And we have seen what opening one's mouth has generated for us with the Obama record. Don't know why you would listen to rhetoric and ignore substance but that seems to be what the Obama cult does.

    You obviously don't pay attention to the facts posted, the huge increase in labor force in TX, the massive job creation in TX, and the many options that people in TX have to get healthcare. I asked a question yesterday which no liberal wants to answer. Would you prefer to live in a state that is growing, that supports individual freedoms, that promotes business growth, that offers opportunities for the individual to start a busines and face low taxes or the Govt. mandates and massive nanny state being promoted by liberals? Pretty easy question that liberals like you won't answer.

    Perry has promoted an atmosphere that creates jobs in TX and is a great ambassador for seeking companies to move to TX. Keep demonizing TX but all that does is destroy your credibility.

    No, I actually pay attention. Many are low wage jobs. Texas competes for the worst health care in the nation. Perry took federal dollars, and is a huge contributor to corporate welfare. So, he spends, a lot, on those who need it the least.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Many are low wage jobs? What is low wage to you and how do you know what the cost of living for those individuals and who makes up those individuals with what you call low paying jobs? As posted BLS shows 550,000 Minimum wage and below minimum wage jobs(People working for tips) yet you ignore the labor force of TX which is over 12 million. What is the percentage of minimum wage jobs in TX with that labor force and how does that percentage compare to the national numbers?

    Interesting how liberals have no clue as to the cost of living in TX. Someone making minimum wage in TX paying ZERO in State income taxes is doing better off than someone in another state being paid minimum and subject to higher state taxes. Just another sound byte from a liberal who hasn't a clue.

    Minimumwage is minimum wage. Not having health insurance is not having health insurance. Spending money, your tax dollars, is spending money, your tax dollars. Are you sure you have a clue?

    I'm not demonizing Texas. Nor am I rooting for a "football team" like you are.

    I think Texas can do better in education, health care, poverty and other metrics .

    You seem to be content with the status quo merely because the Governor is a Republican.

    I'd personally prefer someone who isn't out to give their campaign contributors as many jobs and contracts as possible. Someone who isn't going to borrow their way to low taxes and an increase in low paying jobs. Someone who doesn't only support individual freedoms that he agrees with and seeks to deny some of those freedoms to others (SSM) with a constitutional amendment. Someone who doesn't refuse to believe many scientific facts, whether about the environment and how certain corporate actions can negatively affect it or concerning evolution or the fact that one of his citizens was most likely executed in error because a fire marshal was wrong in his assessment of a house fire.

    Minimum wage jobs in TX according to BLS total 550,000 out of a 12 million labor force. What does BLS say the percentage of minimum wage jobs are in the country? How much do you think a teen should get for their first time job? Who are you or the govt. to tell private business what to pay its workers?

    I never paid minimum wage to any of my hourly employees because the market wouldn't bear it. In fact I paid over $10 an hour in some areas just to compete. Do you understand competition and the affects on wages? Further do you understand that some states have a higher minimum wage than the national minimum wage, i.e. California? Doesn't seem that you have a clue.
