    You seem to be an expert on TX whereas I live here and obviously am not. What you fail to recognize is that BLS shows 550,000 minimum wage and sub minimum wage jobs in TX out of a total labor force of over 12 million. In case you cannot do the numbers that is less than 5% so hardly significant but keep spreading the misinformation

    Rick Perry does an excellent impersonation of Josh Brolin impersonating George Bush.

    It's true that your not an expert, yes. Living somewhere actually doesn't by itself make you an expert. It is possible to be blinded by ideaology.

    Why did you totally ignore this part of the post?

    Instead of answering this part you chose to insert a snarky little, small minded jab....Why should anyone take you seriously?

    Because it has been addressed earlier and repeatedly. Like many who don't understand, he repeats numbers but never addresses the rebuttal points. Until he does, his repeation is nothing more than . . . Squirrel!!!!!

    Actually I am blinded by results whereas you ignore the results. The Obama results speak for themselves and those results are for 2011 long enough for Obama to stop blaming Bush

    All you have ever done is divert, distort, and place blame on someone else.

    It is the blame Bush argument, used for every post and every excuse for the Obama results

    Nope. It has been shown that many of the NEW jobs are low paying and goign to immigrants.


    While there's no doubt that job growth in Texas far outpaces the rate in California, federal employment statistics show that many of the jobs created are low-wage positions, and 17 percent of Texans are living in poverty, according to the census.


    Perry rails against the new federal health care law, promising to "repeal Obamacare" if elected. But 26 percent of Texans don't have health insurance - the highest rate in the nation, according to the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. The income gap between wealthy and middle-class families is the fifth-widest in the nation, according to the Legislative Study Group.

    The social byproducts of the Texas miracle, where Perry has shaved billions from education funding and social services to balance the state budget, are not pretty, according to the Legislative Study Group. The SAT scores of Texas students rank 45th nationally, and the state is dead last in the number of residents over 25 who have a high school diploma.

    (snip)


    It is accurate that 4.8 percent of all jobs in Texas are below the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. But last year, Texas tied with Mississippi for having the highest percentage of minimum-wage jobs in the nation, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
