    No your're not, you are concerned about growing the size of govt. so you can get a piece of the action.

    McAllen TX and the valley is a liberal bastion in the state of TX again something you don't understand. That area went big for Obama in a state that Obama lost by over 2 million votes.

    Take personal responsibility. Your state simply doesn't measure up.

    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.

    By your standards? I am not worried about it, you keep pointing out liberal areas of the state but of course that fact escapes you.

    Yep, I live in a hell hole. Thanks for your concern. Will have to cut down my bike riding tomorrow on the 160 miles of hike and bike trails. It really sucks here and the Hill country is really a terrible place. Better stay in Iowa as you certainly wouldn't like it here and I know we wouldn't like having you here.

    Long live the sequester being insisted upon by Boehner, Can'tor, McCarthy and Hensarling. Ain't life grand? Every issue is approached by Boehner as: "Let's have a 'whale' of a fight".

    Like I've said, facts are facts. Trade with the working poor and get back to me.

    And like I have stated, you wouldn't survive in TX because Texans understand personal responsibility. People who are making minimum wage are making that wage because they are incapable of doing any better. People in this state that are uninsured mostly are uninsured by choice. People in this state living in poverty aren't looking for a handout from liberals. I know that is hard for you to understand but TX represents the basic values upon which this country was built, values that you and your ilk are trying to change. Don't think that is going to happen in my lifetime.

    That is northern Mexico for all practical purposes. McAllen, TX is 84.6% hispanic and 11.7% white. Edinburg, TX is 88.2% hispanic and 8% white. Mission, TX is 85.4% hispanic and 12.4% white.

I guess your rankings weren't considered.

    Nice diversion though as the topic was ER usage
    Yeah then why are we almost dead last in every category. The only thing Perry and his bible thumpers have done is made this state a minimum wage mecca!
