Rick Perry has unveiled his economic plan, and it’s likely to pick up the nickname 20-20, from the 20% personal and 20% corporate flat tax rates. However, it has a lot more to it, as the campaign website shows:
The current economic problems faced by so many Americans were created by years of wasteful mismanagement and incompetent central-planning and cannot be fixed overnight. To be sure, there are a number of things that can be done by the president on day 1 to begin the process of restoring the American economy. But the reforms necessary to fix the broken tax and regulatory code, balance the budget, and grow the economy for the long-term will take some time and patience. Their implementation requires a clear plan, consistent leadership, and sustained resolve.
As if this was a surprise to anyone:
“A lot of us who normally would have been in this presidential race a long time ago, have been waiting for Christie to make a decision,” said Georgette Mosbacher, a Republican uber-fund-raiser and finance co-chair of the Republican National Committee who was among a group of Republican bundlers hoping to convince Christie to enter the race. “I think tomorrow, we’ll be contacting one another and probably put something together with Romney.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry went on CNBC today to talk about a lot of issues, including securing the border.
Unfortunately, I can’t get CNBC’s video to embed, so just go here to watch it. The part about the border and immigration starts about 5:40, but he’s got a lot of other good things to say.
Perhaps Gaia is punishing Texas?
“Some of you here may be folks who actually used to be Republicans but are puzzled by what’s happened to that party, are puzzled by what’s happening to that party. I mean, has anybody been watching the debates lately? You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change,” Obama said in San Jose.
