“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.”
Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation. For almost fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. ACU defines conservatism, grows conservatism, and wins for conservatism.
