Tax Policy Expert: Bush, Perry, Kasich Strong on Job Creation

By    |   Tuesday, 21 Apr 2015 03:04 PM

With employment expected to be one of the top issues of the upcoming presidential election, tax policy expert Travis Brown says that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have notable records as job creators.

Brown, CEO of Pelopidas Media Network, told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Tuesday that he looked at data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and compared the various governors considering making a run for president in 2016 based on "the months in office, the length of time and ultimately get to the net private jobs.

"We know that private sector employment is perhaps the most important indicator," he explained.

At the "top of the list [for] jobs per day" is "Florida Gov. Jeb Bush."

"During his time in office — nearly 96 months — [Bush] created 406 jobs per day," he said. "That's a pretty impressive record over that span.

"Behind that we have Gov. Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, at 397 jobs per day over 180 months," he added.

"In the last five years, John Kasich has produced 226 jobs per day or that equates to about 6,792 jobs per month," Brown said. 

"That is a pretty different trajectory change for the state of Ohio," he added. "Ohio, previous to him, was 49th in the country in job growth. There's signs that they're pulling and turning that around." 

"In his term just recently they cut income taxes . . . by nearly $3 billion," the CEO of Pelopidas said. "They can really change a course by lowering the price on work, and that's why we're seeing some of the positive results about Ohio changing."

He concluded that "a lot of these governors that are vying, possibly announcing that they'll run, have records."

Another governor Brown says has an impressive jobs record, although he is not a likely 2016 candidate, is Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, who is "showing a trajectory change under his term looking at their record of just 50 months — 247 jobs per day created in Michigan — a state that used to be dead last in GDP growth."

Brown explained that "depending on the length of time and consistent with the national economy, the boom and bust periods over those different periods, we can really look at the performance of what's happened in their state."

By comparison, former Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley, who is considering a presidential run, "just shows about two jobs created per day," he added.

Brown contends that "American voters understand that being a governor for one or two or in some cases up to four different terms . . . means that you have real chief executive experience in states. It means that they've been held accountable and been under duress during that time for the jobs and income that they say they're in favor of creating."

This is important for the 2016 presidential election, he argues, because "we know the top three priorities of this next election are going to be jobs, jobs and jobs."

Brown is the author of "How Money Walks: How $2 Trillion Moved Between the States and Why It Matters."
