I’m a strong believer that low taxes and responsible spending act as an engine that drives economic growth and results in job creation. Over the last year, lawmakers reduced spending and fought tax increases. Our economy has grown and 286,000 private sector jobs have been created in Texas.
When you are able to keep more money in your pocket, you are able to enjoy more freedom. You earned that money – the government didn’t. Accordingly, when the government comes knocking and makes a demand for a percentage of our treasure, it’s our duty as citizens to demand that the government doesn’t spend it frivolously. Only an active citizenry can provide the oversight required to ensure that our cities, school districts and state government operate efficiently. We need legislators who are fiscally vigilant.
A few reasons TX is ahead:
Our state is doing a bit better than the rest of the country. There are 5 key reasons for that.
– We are a right-to-work state.
– Texas does not have a state income tax… and never should. I will never; let me repeat: I will NEVER support a state income tax for Texans. It’s one of the reasons why people choose to come to Texas. Most people get an immediate pay raise when they come here. And so long as that’s true, they’ll keep coming.
– We have a reasonable and predictable regulatory system coupled with tort reform that discourages and, at times, penalizes frivolous lawsuits.
– Largely, Texas does not engage in debt spending practices. We keep our state debt artificially low. So low, that Texas ranks 49th out of 50 states in debt per-capita.
-Texas crafts responsible spending plans that do not burden our economy under bloated state programs. Texas spends less per-capita than any other state in the nation.
Send common sense business people to Austin.
This type of pro-business environment is why last year Texas jobs accounted for nearly 40% of all new jobs that were created in this country, despite being home to only 8% of the country’s population. This type of atmosphere is only made possible by electing common sense conservatives with private sector backgrounds to the state house, state senate and governor’s office.
With job creation and economic growth being the most important issue for many Texans, doesn’t it make sense to send folks to represent us in Austin that have personal and direct experience in job creation and economic growth? I started my company 16 years ago with only about 100 dollars and a dream. Since then, I’ve been blessed and have been able to create nearly 100 American jobs and open up a dozen locations across the country.
I think is an exceedingly good idea to elect folks to our Legislature that have experience in directly creating jobs in the private sector. In order to run our State like a business, we need to elect people that know what it’s like to be responsible, meet a large payroll and to run an efficient business operation that actually generates a profit.
Texas has always been a leading state economy and will continue to be an example to the nation through your support of business minded candidates.
