Rick Perry: ‘Freedom Still Matters’ in Texas
Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Tuesday that the Lone Star State shines as a “land of opportunity” at a time of national economic struggle.
“There is still a land of opportunity in America,” the former GOP presidential candidate said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” ” It’s called Texas.” Perry, who was co-hosting the show, offered wide-ranging commentary on a variety of economic and philosophical ideas.
“I think the human nature is to be free,” Perry said. “The human instinct is to be free. Free from overtaxation, free from overregulation, free from overlitigation. And until we free up the entrepreneurs in this country, we are going to struggle economically as a nation.”
