    And yet the labor force continues to grow as does the population. Apparently the people moving to TX haven't requested information from you.

    You're easy to satisfy, as you just need it to be a republican spending your tax dollars.

    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.

    Your point re: cost of living is valid but that was an incredibly misleading example. Why are you comparing the average home cost MA's most expensive city to the average home cost in the whole state of Texas. Perhaps a better comparison would be Houston, with a median home cost of $224,000?

    Actually, I don't know where your numbers come from, but they seem to be wildly inaccurate. The median home price in Texas is $174,000 versus about $300k in Massachusettes.

Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 40% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    Looks like you are never going to answer the direct question posed to you about living in a state with individual freedoms or one that promotes the nanny state that forces you into various govt. programs. That speaks volumes as to who you are

    It's all relative to where he started.

    And what Obama inherited: economy shedding 700,000+ jobs per month, GDP shrinking at 6+% per year, financial institutions teetering on the edge of collapse, trillion+ deficit.... Nice improvement.

    Repeating the same thing mindlessly is not a rebuttal. You can't skip the point by yelling squirrel!!!

    TX has a balanced budget and did it without raising taxes. It has a part time legislature who lives under the programs they implemented. It has a growing population and a growing labor force. That drives liberals crazy. Amazing how little you know about TX yet how you claim to be an expert.

    Right, keep demonizing everything else so you can divert from that record.
