    yet the unemployment figures from MA for 2010 is 7.6 and for Texas is 8.2, not much of a difference so being first or eighth doesn't matter with unemployment such as these.

    Looks to me like quite a difference than what the MA rag points out. Notice employment in MA Jan 2009 vs. today and compare that to TX

    Employment growth from 3.225 to 3.246 is hardly great job growth and doesn't trump TX. 21,000 jobs grown in two plus years? Sounds like Obama math

    2009 3225.8 3216.8 3202.3 3192.0 3183.5 3173.6 3164.4 3161.1 3162.1 3162.4 3161.4 3165.6
    2010 3181.2 3177.3 3178.9 3187.2 3197.3 3185.1 3190.0 3187.6 3183.0 3189.3 3189.8 3193.8
    2011 3195.4 3209.8 3208.5 3228.8 3224.7 3234.1 3246.8

    TX employment numbers


    2009 10524.2 10462.4 10403.5 10343.4 10318.8 10291.8 10255.9 10231.0 10220.6 10214.4 10212.0 10209.0
    2010 10234.9 10239.5 10275.0 10302.7 10357.9 10368.6 10350.3 10361.8 10361.6 10384.9 10403.3 10444.7
    2011 10471.0 10488.9 10524.2 10554.5 10556.6 10590.5 10619.8

    And yet, MA ranks clear ahead in education and health care.

    Wow, imagine that, TX using Federal Taxpayer money to pay for Federal Mandates which is a requirement signed by Bill Clinton when he agreed with the Contract with America in the 90's. No state should ever have to pay for Federal Mandates. Thank Bill Clinton for signing that law

    Plus, it has to rank higher than TX when it comes to percent of population making minimum wage or lower, since TX is at the bottom of that particular index.

    I posted the rankings dude. Perhaps you should look at them.

    But, while we're on this subject, allow me to add something I found earlier on perry:

    Rick Perry king of corporate welfare
    Ok, Boo. Seventeen (17) things that critics are saying about Rick Perry Seventeen (17) things that critics are saying about Rick Perry | Pesky Truth

    Don't be in denial.... the economy and unemployment will take center stage during this cycle, Boo

    Oh, and another thing...Obama is taking Perry more seriously than you are. Wonder why?

    That's quite likely.
