Perry didn't create any jobs, except for the people who keep him looking pretty.

But that (the raw number of new jobs in Texas) doesn't mean that all is well with employment in the Lone Star State.

Texas leads the nation in minimum-wage jobs, and many positions don't offer health benefits. Also, steep budget cuts are expected to result in the loss of more than 100,000 jobs.

Perhaps most importantly, Texas can't create jobs fast enough to keep up with its rapidly growing population. Texas would need to create another 629,000 jobs, or 5.6% more positions, just to reach its pre-recession employment level, according to the Economic Policy Institute.

"They have a long way to go before they get back to a positive place," said Doug Hall, director of the Economic Analysis and Research Network, an institute project.

In addition, Texas enjoys advantages that have nothing to do with having Perry at the helm.

Rich in natural resources, the state has been benefiting from the high price of oil and the expanded interest in natural gas exploration. Energy employment has soared by 16.8% over the past year alone.

If you are currently on these services nothing changing. You just lie and keep up with the typical Mediscare left wing BS you continue to spew and when you get called out on it you become like a fart in the wind..
