Texas is using the election to woo new businesses

Recommended Posts

In a couple of weeks voters in Washington state will decide if they want to start an income tax. Texas is using this to its advantage:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has sent letters to around 90 top employers and a few business associations in Washington urging companies worried about taxes to head on over to his state.

"As the State of Washington considers a multibillion-dollar tax increase for citizens and businesses ... I invite you to consider your future in America's new land of opportunity: the State of Texas," Perry wrote.

"If Washington doesn't want your business, Texas does. Texas has no personal income tax and no interest in getting one."

Perry is also going to win this election with his Texas = no/low taxes, good for business (relocation), good for jobs, strong on (*cough*) public education mantra. Despite voters' fatigue of Rick Perry, it doesn't look good for White.

As much as I despise Perry, I have to admit that this is very clever. Maybe we can lure Boeing? :)
