I'm more jobs and businesses moved to Texas that.
Any other states.
Because our leaders in technology.
We have over a half a million women -- businesses.
And 14100 people -- here every day Texas is -- your opportunity awaits.
Well I say everything is better and I'm gonna say having -- their bigger in Texas and governor Rick Perry wants to make sure everyone knows it.
He's taken that commercial and on the East Coast now governor Rick Perry joins me this morning did you.
You want governor it's gonna be here do you studies commercials -- really talking about California and Illinois I think specifically in that earlier in new York New Jersey and Connecticut why come to the east codes.
Well you fish for the fish -- and the fact visitors economic policies and in those states that.
-- counter this is two things really it's it's about going out and recruiting business is -- the great story about taxes our tax.
Like tax burden regulatory climate that's fairly predictable legal system that doesn't allow for over pursuing and -- very.
Skilled workforce and those are the four things that.
Businessmen and women really look for so you'd tell that story and at the same time.
Drive a discussion drive a civil discourse about blue state vs red state policies in which of those really work for America because.
If we are competing against one another if new York and Texas are competing for jobs where there on the finance side or whether -- pharmaceutical or whether their weapons manufacture.
Creating an environment where they can -- and grow is good for America.
Yep because taxes especially I think in New York -- -- seven point one corporate income tax Connecticut seven point five percent tax rate.
I'm interested to know -- that -- -- a little phone call to you Governor Cuomo governor Malloy in.

So you -- and that -- -- 14100 people move every day to the state of Texas.
Maybe this is one of the reasons look at Texas vs California with regard to unemployment California's at nine point 0% as of April.
Of this year Texas at six point.
