Governor Perry on Fox Business News

On Fox Business News, Governor Perry spoke at length with host David Asman about the relative economic and fiscal strength of Texas, even in these tough times. Governor Perry reiterated his five keys to success, including:

1. Don't spend all the money.
2. Keep the taxes low.
3. Make sure the regulatory climate is fair and predictable.
4. Tort reform to prevent frivolous lawsuits.
5. Fund an accountable education system to produce a skilled workforce.

Because Texas has been fiscally responsible, Texas is still succeeding:

The Governor also spoke out against cap and trade, which would be the largest tax increase in American history, and he discussed the 10th Amendment, the tea party movement, and health care reform.

Governor Rick Perry: Texas Values. Proven Leadership.

Under the leadership of Governor Perry, Texas has positioned itself as the nation's example for economic development and securing the border. It's no wonder Governor Perry has earned the trust-- and the endorsements-- of so many individuals and organizations representing a so many thousands of Texans.

As Texas leads the nation out of this undeniably tough time, it is important to keep the positive momentum going in our state, which is why Governor Perry on Tuesday offered several new proposals to maintain Texas' status as the greatest state in the country, including:

• A constitutional amendment requiring a two-thirds vote of the legislature to increase state taxes;
• Making permanent the recent tax cut extended to 40,000 small businesses in the last legislative session (under current law, the $1 million business margins tax exemption will expire in 2011);
• Imposing criminal penalties on employers who knowingly violate employment laws by hiring workers who are in Texas illegally; and
•Paving the way for ongoing job growth by purging unnecessary laws and regulations that stifle Texas entrepreneurs.

Under Governor Perry, Texas is succeeding:

Internet Sabotage: Denial of Service Attack

Statement from Texans for Rick Perry Spokesman Mark Miner Concerning Internet Sabotage

“Today’s ‘Talkin' Texas’ webcast by Gov. Perry was deliberately interrupted by a denial-of-service attack, preventing countless users from logging in to view the Governor’s remarks. This planned and coordinated attack was political sabotage, and we are working to identify those responsible for this illegal activity. Before the attack was initiated, more than 22,000 users were able to log in and view Gov. Perry’s complete remarks, which will be distributed shortly.”

The "Talkin' Texas" page will host the archived video as planned, for those who were unable to log on and watch.

Deep in the Heart of Texas.

In these uncertain times, we are all concerned about the future. While Texas is by no means immune to the recession facing our country, it will be Texas that leads our nation out of its economic doldrums.

The Texas model of governance, which-- under Governor Rick Perry's leadership-- has produced balanced budgets, provides a very clear contrast and an important alternative to the out-of-control deficit spending in Washington. The results are clear. Texas remains the nation's economic leader, even in these tough times:
