Rick Perry is Upsetting the Whiny-Ass Liberals

‘Rick Perry recruits jobs and business for Texas’

By Rich Lowry

What you are now hearing across the land is a collective whine. Blue-state Democrats are upset that Texas Gov. Rick Perry dares come and play in their sandboxes, and worse, threatens to “poach” jobs from their states.

The website Politico reports that Perry’s attempts to lure jobs to Texas are “infuriating to prominent Democrats around the country.” Gov. Jerry Brown of California — a state that is Perry’s foremost target — has dismissed Perry’s handiwork in scatological terms. Democrats from another target, Illinois, huff and puff about the temerity of it all. “He better not take our businesses away,” Sen. Dick Durbin warned.  He better not or what, exactly? What recourse does Illinois have, except improving its own business environment? Which would mean Rick Perry is good for Texas … and for Illinois.

Perry is exploiting the genius of our federalist system for all it’s worth. In his business-recruitment trips, accompanied by trash-talking ads and Texas-sized braggadocio, he is subjecting other states to the fire of competition. In an ad in Crain’s Chicago Business, Perry offered businesses in the state “an escape route to economic freedom … a route to Texas.”

This is exactly how the Founders imagined the interplay among the states working, although in the era prior to the arrival of Texas in the union, they might have had trouble imagining Rick Perry. The George Mason University scholar Michael Greve refers to the system as “competitive” federalism. “This federalism relies on exit and mobility — of capital, and of labor — as a means of disciplining government,” he writes. “Competitive federalism is a terrific prescription for a big, diverse country with a highly mobile citizenry and a national government that responds poorly to democratic demands.”

Rick Perry may be boastful, but he has a lot to boast about. Texas had a 6.4 percent unemployment rate in April. When President Barack Obama recently made Austin, Texas, his first stop on a trip touting job creation, Perry welcomed him with an ad noting, accurately, “Over the last 10 years, Texas created 33 percent of the net new jobs nationwide.”
