Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! Rick Perry-Well, Yeah, GOVERNMENT JOBS

from a man who professes to be against big government. Bwahahahah.

From the Wall Street Journal

Texas has enjoyed the most robust economy in the U.S. during Mr. Perry's decade as governor, which is one reason his potential candidacy is attracting national attention. The Lone Star State gained more than a million jobs since the end of 2000, while the U.S. has lost almost 1.5 million, according data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

About 300,000 of the new Texas jobs were in government. Well over half of them, fueled by the surging population, were at public schools. Employment in the state's public sector has jumped 19% since 2000,

But oopps, there's a fly in the ointment.

Now layoffs loom. State budget cuts, championed by Mr. Perry to address a big budget shortfall, are prompting school districts around the state to lay off hundreds of teachers and other workers going into the school year starting next month.

The layoffs haven't shown up in federal data, but some economists forecast they may damp the state's vaunted economic growth. And many more jobs are likely to disappear over the next two years as a result of about $15 billion in state budget cuts.

Also, bear in mind that Texas is known for minimum or below minimum wage jobs.

So, come on down to Texas if you're a business that wants a handout from Rick Perry and the Texas Enterprise Fund or you can't find a decent paying job in a state that cares about its citizens somewhere else (Texas has the highest rate of teen pregnancies, high rate of uninsured children, is down towards the bottom on public education, high at the top as polluter-you betcha!) )

In fact, that brings us to Rick Perry's Lie O Day "Government Doesn't Create Any Jobs"...oh, except for the government jobs you created... boing!!! Or the money you spent throug the Texas Enterprise Fund that didn't work out too well, eh?

P.S. Here's 10 reasons why the Texas Economy and jobs have Zip to do with Rick Perrya

and what kind of jobs in Texas? BAD JOBS. C'mon down!

And Rick's Stimulus Miracle

Stimulus Miracle: In Texas, we actually know it is a good idea to look a gift horse in the mouth. Rick Perry rejected $555 million in unemployment insurance from the federal government, only to accepted $14 billion in other federal stimulus dollars. The San Antonio Business Journal reported that economic stimulus initiative created about 2.2 million to 2.8 million jobs nationwide in the first three months of 2010, and Texas reported 205,000...
