Part time Governor
In response to Aug 6 article "Perry to speak at Iowa gathering"
We know that more than 15 percent of Texans are unemployed (the real stats, not gov't stats), a large majority of Texas children have no health care insurance, property taxes continue to increase dramatically... and yet, Governor Rick Perry is in Iowa playing national politics again [poorly] instead of being here in Texas trying to resolve these and other of our urgent issues with Legislators.
It is clear that Perry's thoughts are more outside of Texas than here where they should be. As the highest paid governor in the US, Perry should either step down from Governor or cut his pay to half, since he is a half time Governor.
