Texas’ Strong Economy

Texas State Rep. Ken Paxton understands what it takes to create jobs and prosperity.

Writing in the Dallas Morning News, Paxton points out that “Texas has gained 36,000 manufacturing jobs since 2004, while 200,000 manufacturing jobs have left Ohio since 2000.” The reasons? “Unlike Ohio, which has one of the highest personal income tax rates in the country, Texas has no personal income tax. Also, Texas is a right-to-work state, whereas unions still heavily control a number of industries in Ohio.”
