Once a liar, always a liar?
Looking at it 5 years later you don’t have to be an Einstein or brain surgeon to see that Perry was touting another pack of lies, just as he has done so many time, e.g., Proposed Amendment 15, a.k.a., the alleged "cure for cancer.”
Also 5 years ago Perry lobbied to deregulate higher education tuition, promising Texans that doing so would decrease the cost of a college education while making institutions more competitive. That proposition was approved also. After 4 successive tuition increases since the proposal was accepted, tuition costs are the highest ever in the state.
