And when will the states that prosper be forced to bail out those that have no fiscal accountability....aka, Michigan, whose rep said that Obama owed them. I am a Texan and fear all of the people moving here will vote the Sam job killing, anti-business liberals that made them flee their own state in the first place! I so wish we could secede!

I would gladly give ten years off of my life if Texas would secded. That way I would at least have a hope that my antecedents would have a chance to live free.

The way things are now in the good old USA, not so much.

The Tree of Liberty is almost in such a state that all the "fertilizer" in the world might not save it. With apologies to Mr. Jefferson.

Yep, I don't think Yankees or Khaliforicationians' should be permitted to enter Texas, or better yet, even depart their regions.

Texas is in much better shape than California. Taxes are lower, in part because Texas has no state income tax.

No wonder the Lone Star State is growing faster and creating more jobs.

And the gap will soon get even wider since California voters recently decided to drive away more productive people by raising top tax rates.

But a key challenge for all governments is controlling the size and cost of bureaucracies.

Government employees are probably overpaid in both...
