    "limited government, low taxes and a pro-business environment are creating more jobs than any other state.”

    Okay, let' pretend I'm a business owner, right-wing capitalist who yearns for no-regulation, non-existant taxes and a beaten down workforce that will labour for pennies a day.

    What the F do I can if this "creates more jobs" than any other state?  

    I won't give a crap if unemployment is 80%.  In fact, I will want unemployment to be as high as possible because than I have a pool of workers willing to labour for literally next to nothing.

    Clearly the "more jobs" bullcrap statment is for home consumption and is not designed to encourage relocation of outside businesses.  If Perry was actually speaking to the business interests he would have said something along the lines of "....are creating more profits for business than any other state."

    Tax and Spend I can understand. I can even understand Borrow and Spend. But Borrow and give Billionaires tax cuts? That I have a problem with.
