Skip to comments.Cruz to Illinois banks, gun companies: Come on down to Texas!

Our new Sen. Ted Cruz, of the great state of Texas, has a knack for making himself heard, and I look forward to a tenure filled with such press statements.
Dear Rahm, this is what a little state-to-state competition looks like. Companies bullied by Mayor Pottymouth arent obligated to stay in the cold, bankrupt, and increasingly inhospitable state of Illinois. And, Cruz is proactive in his pitch to Rahm-targeted Bank of America, TD Bank, Sturm & Ruger, and Smith & Wesson (though not proactive in the subsidies arms race we too often see in state competition over sports teams and big companies):
You may be understandably concerned that there are risks to refusing to comply with the demands of a politician who has earned the nickname, The Godfather.
In Texas, we have a more modest view of government.
We do not accept the notion that government officials should behave as bullies, trying to harass or pressure private companies into enlisting in a political lobbying campaign. And we subscribe to the notion, quaint in some quarters, that private companies dont work for elected officials; elected officials work for private citizens.
In light of the reception you have received in the Windy City, please know that Texas would certainly welcome more of your business and the jobs you create. Texas value jobs and value freedom, and over 1000 people a day are moving to Texas (often from cities like Chicago), because Texas is where the jobs are.
In true conservative fashion, Cruz offers the companies the right to be left alone and perhaps not demonized at every turn...

He gets better and better
What a breath of fresh air this Senator Cruz is! :-)
if Texas will protect corporations from federal tax laws, then they will see a massive boom in corporations moving to the state.
by this I mean, the monies left over that are not paid out in salaries, distributions, expenses, etc... those monies are usually taxed by the fedgov at about 40%+. make it so any Texas based company with Texas only banks gets such protection... and Texas will see all the big companies move in... driving down unemployment and driving up home/ real estate values. also, many corporations are based off shore for this reason... they would also move to Texas.
this would also shore up Texas banks and decrease interest on local loans, helping the local community even more
the only down side would be the fedgov receiving less tax money, that they normally redistribute to the politically favored... not in Texas
