I love Rick Perry! Leave Your States Business is Better in Texas!
Governor Rick Perry (R) is putting that ol’ “everything’s better in Texas” motto to the test. He appears in a new TV ad campaign, shown above, in hopes of enticing New York businesses to ditch the Empire State. The governor wants not only New Yorkers, but others across the country to know that his state is open for business.
Gov. Perry sat down with Shannon Bream on America’s New HQ on Sunday to explain. He said it’s a good experiment for the United States to take a look at how businesses in Texas are affected by low tax burdens, a legal system that doesn’t allow over-suing and accountable public schools.
He boasted, “Texas has the best business climate in the world. […] Over the last 10 years, 30 percent of all the new jobs created in America were in Texas.”
As for his critics in other states, Gov. Perry believes it's all part of healthy competition. “It’s the 50 laboratories of innovation that are out competing for the jobs to keep America at the front of the race.”
On another note, the governor just passed what's been nicknamed the "Merry Christmas law.” Gov. Perry explained that it protects people’s religious freedom to say things like “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukah” in public without fear of retribution. “Why we had to do that is really kind of reflective of where the political correctness has gone in the country.”
He answered Fox News viewers’ questions which included will he run for president and what’s going to happen now that FEMA has denied funds to victims of the West, Texas explosion. The hear what Gov. Perry had to say, watch the clip above.
