Austin, TX - Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement on the passage of the federal health care bill:

“Unfortunately, the health care vote had more to do with expanding socialism on American soil than it does fixing our health care finance and delivery systems. The Obama health care bill undermines patient choice, personal responsibility, medical innovation and fiscal responsibility in America.

As passed by the U.S. House, the bill will cost Texas taxpayers billions more, and drive our nation much deeper into debt. Congress's backroom deals and parliamentary maneuvers undermined the public trust and increased cynicism in our political process.

Texas leaders will continue to do everything in our power to fight this federal excess and find ways to protect our families, taxpayers and medical providers from this gross federal overreach.”

The media has all but NOT mentioned the fact that there is ONLY ONE lone democratic Attorney General in the bunch that is not GOP. This is another GOP coop attempt; States battling the Fed to keep uninsured … uninsured???

Texas has the highest uninsured in the nation (1 in 3 are uninsured in Texas). Yet the Texas GOP Governor states: the health care bill is fiscally irresponsible. Excuse me!! Who is being irresponsible to his State's residents here??


This man continues to repeat false information just to keep his hand in and because, with the final passage of healthcare, is probably looking for a clean pair of drawers.
