Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry, on a tour aimed at pushing red state tax and business policies to drive growth, said Friday that a major economic difference between California and Texas is that we dont judge success on the number of people we have on public assistance.
California has substantially more liberal public assistance programs, said Perry, considered a possible 2016 GOP presidential candidate, in a wide-ranging interview with the San Francisco Chronicle. This is a state thats going bankrupt. You have huge debt out here..and part of that is driven by these very expensive, very rich programs.
We judge success by the number of people that have a job, said Perry, who has been a vociferous critic of the Affordable Care Act.
He said working Texans are free to go buy (health) insurance, or be in a company that delivers that health care for them. Thats the real future of America.
Nor did he hold back on Obama,
The President of the United States thinks the more people on public assistance, the more successful he is as a leader, he said.
One last excerpt,
Jerry Brown is very capable, thoughtful fellow, he said. He just has a different outlook than I do.
Instead of being bombastic, abusive, and insulting, which is the way Obama and so many Democrats would do it, Perry is gracious and flattering, and simply notes a different set of ideas.

Food stamps have replaced the dollar and are the new currency for Barry’s “fundamentally transformed” Amerika.
For $100 he should be speaking in Anaheim tonite. Not worth the drive but I wish him the best
You tell ‘em, Governor Perry!
Best to grow the business at home.

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
