Perry has a great idea to send congress home for half the year and cut their staffs in half. This way they can do half as much damage.

If Perry EVER had a "great idea" it would die of loneliness.

Perry is lying. He'd do no such thing, but it sounds good to the unthinking members of the electorate. That's populist B.S.

You really believe he's gonna P.O. the guys that he needs to pass anything? Yea...that'll happen.

It least it could happen, much unlike anything put forward by the current liar in chief.

If he want to get it passed all he has to do is pay them double to leave. We would still be much better off.

Uh, no it COULDN'T happen, and you know it. Stop with the delusions.

Rick Perry wouldn't even attempt to float the idea once he got elected.

Geez, are conservatives THAT gullible?

Don't vote for him because you think he can do that. It's constitutionally impossible.

Uh huh. And all he has to do is convince Congress to pass such legislation so he can sign it...

Oh, never mind! The utter impossibility of getting such legislation passed is irrelevant to you fawning tools!

PS - So you're delusional enough to think that Perry might get the nomination?

Perry can talk all he wants, never going to happen. If he had the power, he wouldn't do it himself. Besides, any change to Congress requires the vote of the Congress itself, unless a Constitutional Convention is called by the states, and it's not going to happen
