If Elected, How Will Perry Fix Washington?

The following is just a short excerpt from a Washington Times Op-ed written by Texas Governor Rick Perry.  We all agree that the debates so far have not been very satisfying.  They certainly have not showcased Governor Perry's abilities.  It is very difficult to impress a national audience when the press who is hosting the program is looking for way to ambush or trap the candidates.  It is also impossible for a candidate to be able to lay out his/her platform in a one to three minute timed segment.

We salute the Washington Times for giving Governor Perry an opportunity to express his plans.  It would be good to allow the rest to do likewise.  We advise our readers to click on the link and read the rest of piece from the Washington Times website.  It is truly interesting and gives the voters much to think about.

PERRY: When I am president …

by Governor Rick Perry - Washington Times

Washington is broken and must be completely overhauled to get America working again.
The tinkering technocrats think Washington can be fixed with a pair of tweezers. I, on the other hand, think it will require a president with the courage to take a sledgehammer to the three pillars of big government: overspending, overtaxation and overregulation.
Upon taking the oath of office, I will take immediate executive action to begin dismantling the Washington establishment so we can rebuild the American economy from the foundation up.
First, I will issue an executive order prohibiting the Department of Health and Human Services from any further implementation of Obamacare until we can fully repeal this unconstitutional government mandate, which, if it stands, will diminish our health care and kill jobs.
Second, I will order federal agencies to begin opening American energy fields for exploration and development, which will kick-start economic growth, reduce our dependence on energy from hostile foreign sources and eventually create 1.2 million jobs across every sector of the economy. I also will work with Congress to ensure that new revenue generated from energy production on federal lands is used to pay down the national debt.
Third, I will impose an immediate moratorium on all pending federal regulations, during which government agencies must audit every measure passed since 2008 to determine its necessity and impact on job creation. Those measures that kill jobs will be repealed.
And fourth, I will deploy thousands of National Guard personnel to secure our southern border until we can provide the permanent increase in manpower, technology and fencing needed to protect the American homeland in the long run. If I am elected, Washington will no longer abdicate its constitutional responsibility to secure the border or force states to fend for themselves. Read More...
