How Much Has Absent Rick Perry Cost Us So Far this Year? 3.3 million in security Bills

29 October 2014 at 9:03:49 AM


-- Gov. Rick Perry's (R) out-of-state travel has cost Texas taxpayers $3.3 million in security bills since he won re-election in 2010. Most of that, $1.8 million, came between August 2011 and January 2012, when Perry was running for president. Perry's direct travel costs are paid for by his campaign, his PAC or groups that invite him to visit, but the state covers costs of troopers who travel with him. (Houston Chronicle) Also, how did we miss this: In a conversation with The New York Times earlier this year, Perry said he would consider moving to California after he leaves office. The irony is so rich.

And this is why Rick Perry is a dumb grifter. How about anytime ANYONE runs for president, they pay for ALL costs out of their own pocket? That would sure level the playing field. I don't want to be paying any money for that moron who wasn't even in THIS country when Ebola broke out.

I believe the cost of having Perry as Governor of Texas is much more than that.

One thing is that after the mysterious fire at the Governor's Mansion, Perry & family along with his security moved into a rented lakefront mansion and taxpayers have paid dearly for that ever since.

Consider that Perry is "retired" from government and so in addition to his normal $100,000 job he now gets more than double that as he collects his salary AND his retirement earning WHILE STILL BEING GOVERNOR.  What sort of horse hockey is that???

I also believe there must be hidden earnings that Perry tells no one about.  There has to be, since a con man seldom is honest is most anything he does.

Just some "food for thought"  :)
