    Your report doesn't tell you what you want it to tell you. You want to judge the state of TX with 12 million working Texans based upon 500,000 making minimum wage. Better stick to Iowa.

    Just a reminder:

    The U.S. Census finds that the number of people in poverty in Austin's suburbs more than doubled in the last decade -- up a whopping 142 percent. Meanwhile, Williamson County started off with 11,735 people living in poverty in 2000 and ended up with 34,069 by 2010.

    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.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Sorry, I have only been part of DP since 2009 and haven't voted for a Democrat since 1976 prior to that however I was a staunch Democrat.

    Apparently you aren't used to the big population in TX and TX counties, Williamson County is over by Austin and has over 442,000 people with less than 8% at the poverty level. Wonder what percentage of Iowans at the poverty level. Keep digging as your obsession with TX is quite interesting.

    He'll, I grew up in Jacksonville Florida and Atlanta Georgia. You're wrong yet again.

    And keep in mind that I've made no cliam about Iowa. I merely showed your cliam false.

    And what false claim was that? By the way, Jacksonville, Florida population is 827,000 and Atlanta, Ga 540,000 so you were saying?

    Both of those are larger than the 442,000 you listed. That's all. And you said Texas was better than MA in healthcare, wrong. That Texas had jobs and better standard of living. Wrong. I merely pointed you rank low in nearly very thing. You're example of conservative heaven is really a sucky place to live. You sang it's praises, but really don't know how it stacks up.

    LOL, we are talking a county in TX and one that has a lower percentage in poverty than your state. You are right though, I hate living here, low taxes, low cost of living, very conservative state, limited govt. and liberals have to be off the street at dark.

    No, we were talking about where I've lived.

    What you like simply isn't good for most of the residents of your state.
