Ron Paul of Texas said Perry wrote a letter in the '90s "supporting Hillarycare."
Perry countered that he was his state's agriculture commissioner during the Clinton administration and that he was urging Hillary Rodham Clinton,
then the first lady, not to forget rural healthcare in her proposal to overhaul healthcare policy. Then he looked at Paul and said, "I was more
interested in the one you wrote to Ronald Reagan, saying, 'I'm going to quit the party because of the things you believe in.' "
"Oh," said Paul, "I need an answer on that!"
He went on to explain how he'd supported Reagan in 1976, and supported his....
...principles, but not his spending and deficit policies during the 1980s. "We have to be honest," said Paul, "it was not all that great".
Apparently Perry doesn't like to be reminded he was sucking up to Hilary, while Paul was willing to quit the party rather than stay under a
leadership he didn't believe in.
