Rick Perry promises to Secede from Supreme Court Decision

Texas governor rejects two provisions of health law

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) – Texas Governor Rick Perry said on Monday his state will not implement a Medicaid expansion or health insurance exchange, two provisions of the federal healthcare law upheld last month by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“I will not be party to socializing healthcare and bankrupting my state in direct contradiction to our Constitution and our founding principles of limited government,” Perry said in a statement.

“I stand proudly with the growing chorus of governors who reject the Obamacare power grab. Neither a ‘state’ exchange nor the expansion of Medicaid under this program would result in better ‘patient protection’ or in more ‘affordable care,'” Perry said. “They would only make Texas a mere appendage of the federal government when it comes to health care.

So if any of my fellow Texans were excited to finally be able to get insurance…Perry just fucked you in the ass. He was concerned Texas might lose its status as the state with the highest percentage of uninsured children. What an incredible douche.

Or in other words…a Republican.

Perry continues to display his own brand of “wisdom” that made him such a wonderful candidate for President.
