Rick Perry:

I believe the answer to our economic ills will not be found in Washington, it’ll be found  among the states.”

When discussing the economic improvement in states with conservative governors, Governor Perry added, “We cut taxes, we don’t spend all the money, we create fair and predictable legislation and we stop frivolous lawsuits. Because of that we have an abundance of jobs and revenue that demonstrates that while you can’t spend your way to prosperity, with the right policies you can grow yourself there.”

Perry’s full remarks are available via YouTube here.

Please note that the schedule is available on our CPAC St. Louis website under “Program.”
