It Is No Accident That Jobs And The Economy Grow More Under GOP Governors - Michigan Is The #1 Recovery State - Leading The Nation In Manufacturing Job Growth Gov Rick Snyder (R-MI): State unemployment figures released this week showed that Republican governors’ pro-jobs, pro-growth, low-tax policies work. In fact, the largest employment gains occurred in states run by Republican governors. Michigan tied for the largest jobless rate decline in the entire country. Republican governors are balancing budgets by reforming education, pension, tax and regulatory systems. Most importantly, we’re putting policies in place to make our states engines of economic growth. There is no better example than here in Michigan. We rank first in the United States for recovering the most from the Great Recession and our unemployment rate just hit its lowest point in nearly six years. Weve balanced our budget three years now without accounting gimmicks, eliminated our $1.5 billion structural deficit, passed tax reform and enacted a law to give Michiganders the freedom to work -- to choose whether or not to join a union. The results are clear. Since December 2010, Michigan businesses have created more than a quarter million new jobs. Were number 7 in the nation for personal income growth. And were once again leading the nation in manufacturing job growth. That should be a lesson for the nation. . . . Its not about more and bigger government. Its about creating an environment for more and better jobs. That means getting spending under control, balancing budgets, freeing entrepreneurs from unnecessary regulation and letting the free market take off and do what it does best. We’re seeing that in several states led by Republican governors, like Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, New Jersey and of course in Michigan. The Comeback’s happening. It can happen nationally as well — by following the leadership example set by great Republican governors.
