Texas Gov. Rick Perry tours California asking firms to move to Texas



Knock’em dead Rick!


Texas governor Rick Perry knows how to start a rumble. Last week, he spent a mere $24,000 on radio ads in California, urging firms there to move to Texas, with its “zero state income tax, low overall tax burden, sensible regulations, and fair legal system.” The ad goaded Governor Jerry Brown into telling reporters that Perry’s effort wasn’t news. “It’s not a burp,” he sneered. “It’s barely a fart.”

But his insult generated dozens of stories about the differences between Texas and California, playing into Perry’s hands. He begins a four-day barnstorming tour of California today, touting Texas’s virtues to business owners.

Mike Church did a story on his show a couple weeks ago noting Texas was on its way to being California. Spending increases in Texas are at record highs while taxes are on the rise to cover the government growth in Texas. If this continues, Texas will soon look like California.
