This is a fantastic move for Governor Perry! I'm thinking a move to Texas is in the near future. I'm seeing Texas as the leader of the Union of Free States of the United States in opposition to the Socialist States of the United States led by the Obama/Reid/Pelosi regime.

Thank you for starting this thread, you made my day.

Health care is been a hot topic of debate for years. Today with the fall of the insurance giants from their greedy hedge deals its no wonder the governor of Texas isn't buying into federalizing his state's health care. (cool pun)

Its a three ring circus ... the insurance industry sure seems to be enjoying the political climate.

Right....

Pretty boy Perry the great secessionist can't be believed as he flip flopped on a very important issue to Texans. Secessionist then turned around and asked the fed for money. Hypocrite!!

www.cbsnews.com...

Perry is a master at pushing the right buttons on the electorate but when it comes to a show down....."All hat, no cattle"

What does it say about people that believe a proven lier?

Democratic legislators in Texas are speaking out against the governor's actions.

"That $555 million would that would have come with the stimulus money wouldn't have to be paid back to the federal government, and that would have saved business taxpayers money for the next 20 years," said Democratic State Rep. Mark Strama, according to News 8 Austin.


Where do the Democrats think this 'stimulus' money is coming from?

Wow....

A Texas governor doing something useful for a change......who would have ever thought.

If he keeps this up and starts a national uprising of states against the feds, then I shall be forced to stop insulting Texas and looking at the Lone Star state with...gasp...admiration and respect.

Still won't move there, though.

Ecven though I havent been living back home in the US for a few years now, I am infuriated reading the news and seeing the feds and their fascist bills and policies getting more and more out of control. I would like to see it resolved in a bloodless revolution, where the states gang up and use their collective power to finally knock the Federal government back down where it belongs: delivering the friggin mail and guarding our borders.

I really hope so. But if this bs keeps on, given the sour economic times we are in, they are just stoking the embers of a nasty wild fire.

Yeah let's see how Perry is a big liar once again or if he follows throught with this...

My guess is that he will forget all about it.

Perry is a joke. He is just sucking up publicity wherever he can.

Ask him how many times he has taken on the feds over the tenth amendment since he has been Governor.

Perry is posturing, he is globalist scum, expect him to do nothing but make the news and run for president in 2012.

I wish he was sincere, but he is a NWO puppet also.

Maybe we will find a governor out there that won't take no scat from the government and actually do something about it.

I certainly think it would be disastrous for Hawaii, who appear to have a perfectly good health care system going already. Obama's plan (I'm guessing) would bugger it up, surely?

I hope he leads the charge for the states to take back thier rights. This all-powerful federal "we know what is best for you" crap is getting old. As son as a representative is sent to DC they get thier freaking hooks in em. Spineless twits.

Oh good grief. Are people really hoping for Rick Perry to lead the charge. I think you will be waiting a long time. He is simply posturing for support and nothing else. He hopes that by getting the tea party types to support him he will win the next election.

It is not about the man more than the idea. Unfortunatley someone has to lead the charge. Unfortunatley unless something overtly drastic happens politicians, as much as I hate them, have the forum to get ideas like this into the public mind. Perry is a d-bag. Ok which one of you wants to lead the public charge ?

I do hope you all realize that the individual states have a lot to lose once this reform becomes law. In the bill, it stipulates that the states are responsible for picking up the tab on the additional Medicaid participants that will be created by the new poverty-level thresholds.

For most states right now, mine included, we are already operating at a loss and new taxes are being thrown around weekly in order to try to close the budget gap. This is how things like "soda" and "fast food" taxes become mandatory.

Any additional Medicaid participants at this point are going to merely drive us deeper into the red.

Perry may have a political agenda at the forefront of his mind, but I'm also sure that he has figured out that sending his state further into debt at this point is not going to help any hopes of getting re-elected whether the Fed is to blame or not.

I hate to break it to ya the states are already floating the majority of the Medicaid debt and payment as well as locla doctors and pharmacies are alrady dropping medicaid. Our state is already attempting to get those on Medicaid to our own local version of it (can't remember the name of it right now). That is because the state has recently started to emulate a model by Harris Rosen. Blanket immunity from lawsuits for pro bono work is a powerful incentive for charity work.
