Typical Republican hypocrite. As you might have guessed, Perry had complained about the stimulus being a waste of money.
Perry also likes to trumpet that his state balanced its budget in 2009, while keeping billions in its rainy day fund.
But he couldn’t have done that without a lot of help from … guess where? Washington.
Turns out Texas was the state that depended the most on those very stimulus funds to plug nearly 97% of its shortfall for fiscal 2010, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
