How many times have we heard Rick Perry trash the federal government and taxes? He’s even hinted at secession from the union in protest to this. Now ole’ slick Rick just loves him some federal money:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry sought additional federal help in battling wildfires across his drought-parched state as a woodland blaze gutted at least six homes on Sunday and threatened hundreds more in Austin, the state capital.
And for those that believe this is an emergency incident or something like that, think again. Remember when Rick Perry was out complaining about stimulus money and saying he would refuse it? Yeah – at that time he was saying all that, behind the scenes he was requesting the money, mainly to rebuild the Governor’s mansion.
But let’s not spend all our time on Rick Perry. He’s just like the rest of his party. They complain about federal dollars until they want a piece of the old pie.
