In response to President Obama's statement, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) is highlighting Texas entrepreneurs who have built businesses and contributed to the state's strong economy, recently rated #1 in the country for business by CNBC. On a new website entitled "I Built This" and on Pinterest, Sen. Cornyn shares the stories of successful Texas business owners and how, despite what the President says, they succeeded on their own through hard work and determination.
"The reason why businesses and job creators are coming to Texas from all over the country is because in Texas we always ask the question, "how can we make it easier for you to start your business and grow that business?'
"Texans know -- but the President doesn't understand -- the recipe for success is limiting government intervention, keeping taxes low and reducing harmful regulations that threaten innovation."
