SHOULD THE PRESIDENT TAKE NOTES FROM TEXAS?
While the U.S. lost 2.5 million net jobs over the last five years, Texas created 530,000 net new jobs.
Over the last 10 years, Texas created 33 percent of the net new jobs nationwide.
Texas has been the top exporting state in the nation for 11 straight years.
Texas is ranked #1 on CNBC’s 2012 Top States for Business list.
If every Texan would spend just $100 more this year ($9 per month) on Texas made goods, then 300,000 new jobs would be created in Texas – that would match the projected job growth of the rest of the USA this year.
Mr. President, welcome to Texas. Perhaps you and your team could learn about job creation while you are here from those of us who create jobs.
