So, we just had all these people rally against "tax increases" on the 15th. Perry was very visible through out all this, talking about secession, maybe make Chuck Norris the President of Texas.

Perry, pandering to his base, gearing up for a tough re-election fight rejected the 555 million dollars the federal government wanted to give Texas to help their Unemployment funds. This will actually cause an increase in Umemployment Insurance Tax rate for 2010.
