“Im sure that Rick Perry is proud of the stimulus bailout money he took from Obama as well.”
Perry should have thought before he spoke. :)
btw, Ron Paul took ear marks for his state, even with all his fiscal conservative “talk.”
Gov. Perry didn't make the mess in D.C., then dig the hole deeper with TARP and "stimulus."
Texas sits like a diamond in the "rough" that Obama and the Legislature have created.
Texas used the money better than it would have been used otherwise, so continue your weak attempt to whittle away at the one guy working his job (and being reelected).
The Feds take state dollars and then piddle them back to us -- telling us how to spend them. You might be interested to see how Gov. Perry handles this.
Gov. Perry sued for Texas' money (without Washington telling us how to spend it) -- And won! Promise Kept.
Gov. Perry and the state of Texas have spent over $400 Million Texas tax dollars on trying to secure the INTERNATIONAL border with Mexico. On top of that, Texas is forced by the Feds to pay for illegal incarceration, education, health care, crime and fall out from "funded" and unfunded mandates flowing from the Beltway.
Gov. Perry wants D.C. legislators to go home to their states and districts and live and work under the conditions they've imposed on America.
