Skip to comments.Governor Perry on Cavuto: No exchange
Posted on 11/15/2012 2:01:56 PM PST by mtrott
I am pumped! Governor Perry just told Cavuto that Texas will NOT be setting up a health care exchange under Obamacare. He also raised the 10th amendment as the basis for the sovereignty of Texas as a state.
And he also gave a shout out for the Formula 1 race in Austin this weekend. I love this state!
Let those states that wish to leave secede from the United States
It was a good interview. Perry looked tough and resolute. Impressive.
but did he look Presidential (craziest word of the year...Presidential)
He would have made a good president, too bad the debates were not his forte.
It will take more than a petition for a state to secede from the union. At some point, the state will have to convince people and business that they no longer have to pay federal taxes. And the state will have to defend them against the IRS. They would also have to immediately start their own immigration check points and keep the feds out of the state. The legal battle wouls go on and on.
If people and business (on a majority scale) stopped sending taxes to the fed, the fed would stop sending money to the state. This would essentially seal the deal for secession.
The process has a long way to go before we get there. If it gains momentum and starts to get serious, you can call me an immigrant.
He was allegedly medicated.
Rick Perry, making George Bush look like Einstein.
There are still a lot of things to do without secession, such as nullification and 10th amendment fights.
The problem is Obama will get to appoint some more Supremes...and Romney’s appointments wouldn’t have been much better on this score.
Actually, he can normally hold his own in a debate...just not immediately after back surgery.
Several of my SCCA buddies are in Austin this weekend for the F1 race. Lucky bastiches...
I joined the Texas Nationalist Movement. We have to organize and get a referendum before the voters for secession. Texas could be successful on its own.
You would think with 30 state Governors in our pocket we could press some Amendments.
A bad debate only hurts republicans. Didn’t hurt Obama. We tend to destroy our own people while the other side has it figured out.
“A bad debate only hurts republicans. Didnt hurt Obama. We tend to destroy our own people while the other side has it figured out.”
Nope. Folks don’t care what he says or does as long as they get their bennies.
Yup. That’s why they have it figured out.
“I joined the Texas Nationalist Movement. We have to organize and get a referendum before the voters for secession. Texas could be successful on its own.”
I don’t know about this. Obama likes to compare himself to Lincoln. Maybe this is what he wants.
This is what I don’t understand....often a state sues the Feds to make them stop doing whatever......why not simply say no. We refuse to implement whatever. Minimum wage for instance. Where in the constitution does it allow the Feds to set a minimum wage in Texas for instance? It doesn’t. Texas can set its minimum wage at $2 an hour...or have no minimum wage. Same with redistricting and the voting rights act. The constitution doesn’t give the Feds the authority to tell a state how to draw its congressional districts....other examples abound. No need for secession, just tell the Feds to go pound sand.
Too bad he blew those debates. He would have done a much better job connecting with the common people than Romney.
