Press Release - Gov. Rick Perry Touts Unmatched Pro-Jobs Record, Vision to Get America Working Again

October 11, 2011

Offers strong performance at Washington Post/Bloomberg Debate

HANOVER, N.H. — Gov. Rick Perry this evening reiterated his unmatched job creation record at the Washington Post/Bloomberg Republican Presidential Debate at Dartmouth College.

"Americans want a president with the experience and understanding of how to create jobs and get our nation's economy back on track," said Gov. Perry. "I am proud of my work to establish the environment necessary for job creation. I look forward to applying the Texas jobs blueprint to the rest of the country by implementing a predictable tax structure, placing a moratorium on unnecessary regulations, creating a fair legal climate and putting an end to out-of-control government spending."

During the debate, Gov. Perry shared his record of implementing fiscally conservative policies that have helped Texas lead the nation in job creation. Texas has created more than one million net new jobs under Gov. Perry, and since June of 2009, the state of Texas has been the source of 40 percent of all the jobs created across the nation. In contrast, under President Obama, America has lost 2.5 million jobs.

Gov. Perry emphasized his dedication to implementing low, flat and fair taxes, repealing job-killing regulations, establishing a fair legal climate and restraining government spending in order to get America working again.

Gov. Perry also reiterated his steadfast commitment to repealing Obamacare, the government-mandated healthcare plan President Obama modeled after Mitt Romney's job-killing and signature accomplishment in Massachusetts. Additionally, while Gov. Perry has presided over the nation's number one job creating state, Gov. Romney's Massachusetts ranked 47th in job creation during his term in office.
