Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the federal health care reform bill:
“This ruling will be a stomach punch to the American economy. It is a shocking disappointment to freedom-loving Americans desperate to get our country back on track. Obamacare is bad for the economy, bad for health care, bad for freedom. Americans have made clear their overwhelming opposition to its convoluted, burdensome and overreaching mandates.
“Freedom was frontally attacked by passage of this monstrosity - and the Court utterly failed in its duty to uphold the Constitutional limits placed on Washington. Now that the Supreme Court has abandoned us, we citizens must take action at every level of government and demand real reform, done with respect for our Constitution and our liberty.”
If you think about it, the ball is really and truly in Rick Perry’s court right now. Moreso than I think he even realizes.
Sometimes people have their dates with destiny. Patrick Henry and Sam Houston had theirs. I think Rick Perry might, just might, be about to have his.
Maybe Jindal can succeed. I'm in Louisiana and impressed with Jindal. They are crying like stuck pigs here saying that Jindal is cutting everything.
“Here in Louisiana, look, we refused to set up the exchange. We're not going to start implementing Obamacare,” Jindal told POLITICO. “We have not applied for the grants, we have not accepted many of these dollars, we are not implementing the exchanges, we don't think it makes any sense to implement Obamacare in Louisiana.”
The twin Marxist POS’s Roberts and Obama took our freedom away.
Also in all this we are forgetting that Obama unlawfully passed the Dream Act Amnesty by itself without Congress and after Congress had rejected the Dream Act.
But it is being reported that Dewhurst - whom he endorsed for Senator to replace Kay Bailey - will not sign a pledge to repeal Obamacare.
Perry should have endorsed Cruz who has pledged to get rid of Obamacare.
Proud of my governor...wish he was going to be my president!
Go Texas and Governor Perry!
