“My understanding is that any parent could opt out of having this for their child
under the Perry/Texas law so how can anyone continue to call it a “mandate?”

Another Perry apologist?

Since when are “conservatives” open to allowing the government to force us to “opt-out” of anything?

The government should stay the hell out of how we choose to live.

You are taking a single issue from a 10 year record of running the state. He's bound to have made a mistake or two during the decade. There are more conservative decisions and leanings in his record than not. Sorry if he's not as perfect as Palin. I like her too but she's not going to win the general. She's tweeting from the outside looking in. The first things the other governors will hit her with is her propensity to quit when the going gets tough. What does she do if someone sues her or a family member and threatens her financial stability while she's President (the reason she gave for quitting)?

I invite you to examine my entire eleven year posting history and find one post in support of Rick Perry. Unless you contracted some mental retardation somewhere you can re-read my post and readily see that the subject matter was the Texas Gardasil law not Rick Perry.

In Perry's defense, the story I heard was that it needed to be opt-out in order to be covered by insurance for those making the default opt-in choice. Of course, making it opt-out does discriminate against the cognitively impaired and the lazy.

This case is another example of how over-use of insurance distorts the health care industry. How much would it cost in total to get your lawn mowed if you had an employer-provided, tax-deductible yard-care plan?
