Lower, flatter taxes, limited government are keys to success

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz is welcoming President Obama to Texas, and hopes the president will be able to pick up some pointers in Texas during his visit. "America is stuck with high unemployment and low GDP growth, so it's encouraging to see the President coming to Austin to talk about jobs - perhaps he will learn how to create some from the folks who know how," Cruz said in a statement.

Since this is Obama's second visit to Texas in two weeks, there has been speculation the reason for the visit is to make Senator Ted Cruz the face of Republican obstruction.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic online) - Cruz noted that Obama is scheduled to begin his "Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tour," by highlighting Texas' job record in comparison with the administration's.

For Cruz, many special ingredients comprise Texas' success rate. Texas, he says, is leading the nation in economic growth and job creation due to principled, conservative leaders who understand the keys to economic success are lower, flatter taxes, limited government and restrained spending.

"Texas has shown the country how it's done, and we hope the President will take some of these lessons back to Washington to bring true economic recovery to our nation," Cruz added.

This is Obama's second visit to Texas in two weeks. There has been speculation the reason for the visit is to make Cruz the face of Republican obstruction.

"What Obama wants to do is come into Texas and say, look at how great everything is and to take credit for something that really isn't his. And without saying it, he's saying you've got this Sen. Ted Cruz who wants to be the fly in the ointment. Tell him to fall in line," The Morning News quoted Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Family Leader.

Cruz points out that Texas "continues to outperform the nation in terms of economic growth and job creation," noting Texas' 6.4 percent unemployment rate in comparison to the national 7.6 percent average and the fact that eight of the 15 fastest-growing cities from 2010 to 2011 are in Texas.

"[A]s states with high spending and high taxes are losing jobs, Texas is gaining them. In fact, between 2006 and 2012, Texas gained one million jobs, while California lost 359,000 jobs," Cruz said.

"Additionally, Texas continues to receive national accolades for its robust business climate, most recently in a report released this week by Chief Executive Magazine, naming Texas the best state for business for the ninth consecutive year."
