The benefits for workers are so obvious when a government is supportive of business. It's strange that more politicians just don't get it.

And it benefits the government too. More jobs = more workers = more taxes paid and less government aid paid.

Interesting. They may have added the most jobs, however, they did not have the largest percentage increase for January - that honor goes to Vermont - nor did Texas have the largest percentage increase for the year - that honor goes to...North Dakota, which currently has the lowest overall unemployment rate at 3.8%. The unemployment rate in Texas is still 8.3% despite adding the most jobs.

Sometimes, being a really big state has it's disadvantages too

Don't let that all go to your heads. Texas has their share of budget problems.
We have more people streaming into the state than jobs created.
We have some major cuts going on and talk of state worker furloughs.

Don't get me wrong..I am proud to live in Texas. But I wouldn't go strutting about ignoring our financial problems and we do have them.

You don't have the obligation to buy a McMansion, you can buy a small house
Not a problem, really because you can diminish or avoid property taxes, it's all about your choices...An income tax you can't avoid it
