    I do want to thank you for sending Caterpillar to us with their thousands of jobs. I really have no problem with you remaining in one of the highest tax states in the country. I would prefer people like you remaining in those states as you would never survive here.

    Um, wow. Thanks for proving the stats correct. I know a hell of a lot more about Texico than you do, it appears. Sorry, you're $25 billion in the hole. And yes, you rigged the legislature. You should be proud. Your education system is in shambles and you have decided against teaching science. Any bone-head can work in a factory. What you need are engineers, and they aren't running for Texas, especially since you have rewritten history texts to suit your fundies. Strict creationism and rational men don't coexist well. Never have, never will. Enjoy Texico. I'd rather have a technology corridor than a refinery or $12.00 an hour manufacturing jobs. Temps make that where I live.

    Obviously you use Chicago math, there is a PROJECTED shortfall, not an actual shortfall and in fact that shortfall is being reduced now with spending cuts. You really need to worry more about your own state and the mess you are in there instead of TX. We will keep taking your businesses though, thanks.

    As for where you live, you need to make a lot more money to even survive in Illinois. Glad you like your state, someone has to.

    I am very worried about Texas' 20 billion dollar budget gap.

    Let me know if it happens. Amazing how someone that lives in this state takes every opportunity to run it down. My bet is this will help prevent that gap. Just Caterpillar, there are more moving for California.

    I highly doubt Caterpillar can cover a 20 billion dollar budget gap. And I'm really tired of carpetbaggers like you and the Bushes as well as a pseudo self appointed ramrod gov.

    You seem to be putting a lot of faith in the projected budget gap. I am sure you will be no where to be found when it is closed without raising taxes. Liberals have a problem admitting when wrong so they simply trump up a budget gap that hasn't happened yet. Who projected that Budget gap? Better to wait and see what happens vs. spouting something as fact and making a fool of yourself.

    you are mad at people who are going to be tax payers moving to your state? That is why I want more state power and less federal government power and taxation. We'd have states full of looters that would starve when all the tax payers moved to states that don't have high income taxes or death taxes. and the reason why the left wants more and more federal involvement is to prevent that.

    Tax payers? LOL, we don't have an state income tax. People come here to avoid paying. And I doubt the Bush's nor Conservative hold a state sales tax permit.
