    California legislators took a junket to Texas to find out why Texas was creating jobs while the Golden State lost jobs. The answer is really simple and many have been shouting it for some time: high taxes and burdensome regulations.
    Texas shows it is job friendly through state policies whereas California does quite the opposite. Just look at the numbers. According to an analysis by noted Chapman University economist Essie Adibi, over the last 10 years California has experienced a net loss of over 100,000 jobs whereas Texas has had a net job gain over well over 1 million.

    How about New Jersey?
    New York?

    Texas has a sales tax where as California has a income tax
    Job creation is not Rocket Science and blaming GWB on everything is not going to fix anything

    Yeah... they're awesome... $10B in debt.... but that's besides the point. Gimme a "T" for Texas!

    So with all that corporate pandering, their "sales tax" and the like... they are still $10B short on their annual Budget? Yep... that strategy is just as much of a winner as the rest.

    Granted... California is twice that. But what do you expect when you elect an action hero as Governor.

    I find this whole blame one person attitude very curious. Did Arnie run a dictatorship in CA? I think not. Just like the federal government, blaming one person is a pathetic position for the intellectually bankrupt. Intelligent people consider the whole Administration... and the parties involved... which would be slightly more inconvenient for the Democrats... so I guess I now understand why you choose intellectual bankruptcy over intelligence.

    Guess you liked Arnie then?

    Truth is, I was giving some of the slams back to the "Obaminators" out there. I do realize there is more to it than that... sorry if I offended.

    my state has a sales tax and an income tax. Our unemployment rate is about the lowest in the nation.

    Therefore, the key to prosperity is having both taxes.

    Maryland, NJ and Connecticut also have both taxes - and the highest incomes in the nation.

    Truly, the evidence is overwhelming!

    We have a budget shortfall but it's nothing we can't handle. We could tap into our savings (rainy day fund) and come up with about 9 billion there couple that with payment deferrals that could bring in anywhere from $2 billion to $4 billion and we're back in the black.

    While I agree with your premise... your examples are flawed... Maryland, NJ and Connecticut also have some of the highest costs of living in the Nation. So incomes have to be higher or else no one could afford to live there.

    But you are correct.

    Actually, no. I have very little time for Arnie... or the rest of the corrupt bastards and treasonous bitches that run my home state.
