Texas Gov. Rick Perry's economic development strategy is simple: Have the federal government do what is constitutionally mandated and then get out of the way of the states. Let them compete, he says.
The companies will go to the states that are the most nimble, with the right mix of regulations and taxes, the ability to educate workers and incentives that lessen risk, he said.
"Competition is uncomfortable," he said Wednesday in Rock Hill. "But it's what has allowed America to maintain its edge."
Perry stressed his philosophy with several different examples Wednesday before business leaders from York, Chester and Lancaster counties during a meeting at Physicians Choice Laboratories in Riverwalk Business Park.

Governor Gardasil has a facet to his strategy that you seldom if ever hear mentioned by the Perry faithful; along with jobs, he lures liberals to his state from the blue states and has done a fine job of bluing Texas.
The studies show that most of the Americans moving to Texas are conservative.
I’m going to point out perhaps the most important factor of this national “move business to Texas” campaign.
It makes Texas look great, it sells Texas’s image, even if no business ever relocated the positive publicity it generates is irreplaceable and unmatched by any other state, it is brilliant.
In time, you will be shocked at how Hollywood and the media come portray Texas, this positive publicity and enduring image, is greatly important.
I’ve really been surprised at how in-your-face Mulvaney has been in his support of amnesty. He doesn’t seem to be backpedalling at all, but appears to remain hellbent on amnesty.
I hope he has a strong conservative opponent in 2016.
I like Rick Perry. He and Ted Cruz are the only two candidates for 2016 I am interested in.
The Gardasil and amnesty cracks are getting old. Perry has said ad nauseum he made a mistake on the Gardasil deal and truthfully there was always an opt out clause for parents who did not want their kids to have the shots. All they had to do was say no.
As far as amnesty goes well we will have to deal with that problem. I don’t see Rick Perry as any more pro amnesty that most GOP leaders. In fact he has repeatedly put Texas rangers on the border to try to stop illegals. I don’t think he’s in favor of letting 20 million illegals stay in the US on a path to citizenship. Even if he gets elected President he does not make that decision. The Congress does.
