A former presidential runner is urging Californians to move to
Texas, where he says business can thrive without burdensome taxes
In a 30-second radio spot, Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) invites
California businesses to "check out Texas," as the climate to build
a business in California is "next to impossible." Perry touts Texas
as a great place for businesses in the ad that will run on six
radio stations in The Golden State, including stations in Los
Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Sacramento.
"This is Texas Governor Rick Perry, and I have a message for
California businesses: Come check out Texas," he says. "There are
plenty of reasons Texas has been named the best state for doing
business for eight years running. Visit TexasWideOpenForBusiness.com and see why our
low taxes, sensible regulations, and fair legal system are just the
thing to get your business moving to Texas."
Analysts have predicted that California's high tax rate and
tough regulations will cause a mass exodus of businesses to states
like Texas. Governor Jerry Brown's (D) response to Perry's ad
is a call for Texans to check out California.
