No that couldn’t possibly be the reason why North Dakota was the only state to gain jobs.  Cutting taxes may, just may help create jobs.  I know who would have thought that cutting the taxes of those who create jobs would allow them keep more money so they could create more jobs.

Novel concept.

It was a modest tax cut, but with this economy any tax cut helps.  Perhaps the beltway folks will figure this out, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

  1. Ha, ha, ha! That’s a good one! You said the beltway might figure something out. Very funny.

  2. Lower taxes are cool, but the jobs have nothing to do with that.

    We have a ton of jobs up here because technological advances made a ton of oil in the western part of the state technically recoverable.

  3. Absolutely. North Dakota has very low population and a ton of natural resources to sell. What goes on in the rest of the country, conservative or liberal, has little to do with us 🙂
