Praise for Texas Gov. Perry

Gov. Perry Deserves Credit Not Criticism

Washington – Texas Governor Rick Perry deserves credit for rejecting part of the stimulus package, not the criticism we heard from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson today.

For a long time, Senator Hutchinson has been more than happy to put taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars in government spending. She has a long record of supporting wasteful earmark projects and voted for the $700 billion TARP Program. Texas taxpayers are lucky they have an advocate in Gov. Perry who is willing to make the tough decisions to protect their hard-earned money.

“Gov. Perry has rightly pointed out that the federal stimulus money comes with expensive strings attached that Texas taxpayers will have to assume responsibility for in the long run,” said Club for Growth Executive Director David Keating. “With President Obama and the Democrats in Washington foisting an ever larger pile of debt on taxpayers’ shoulders, it is comforting to know that Gov. Perry refuses to shackle Texas taxpayers with even more state debt.”
