Rick Perry is gonna outdo George Bush on being a Texan? Will he answer the question – if Texas is rolling in so much dough, why do they need so much government assistance? Why can’t they pay for their own disaster victims? It appears, they like government help when it comes to securing their borders, but when it comes to anything else, wasn’t Perry the dude who wanted to secede from the Union? It seems, Perry thinks this country needs another dose of Texas GOP politics, when we’re still surviving the last one. The approach is perhaps the anti-JFK. Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you, and your corporate buds.
Bilk taxpayers and the treasury for as much money as you can possibly shove out the door in the way of corporate welfare, resources wars for profit, bank schemes and any number of predatory scams designed to separate the once strong American middle class from our wealth.
The result of this economic Wrecking Crew? The erosion of our middle class, boom and bust Enron style. Someone walks away with a lot of offshore cash while employees, taxpayers, ratepayers, stockholders, entire states and anyone else in the loop gets the shaft.
