Perry Criticizes Romney’s Health-Care Program

From The Hill:


The Massachusetts healthcare law passed by Mitt Romney (R) as governor is a “huge problem,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) said Thursday of his top competitor for the GOP presidential nomination.

Perry assailed the state healthcare law for its similarities to President Obama’s nationwide healthcare reform law, which the Texan called a “total debacle.”

“I think Mitt is finally recognizing that the Massachusetts healthcare plan he passed is a huge problem for him,” Perry said on conservative talker Laura Ingraham’s radio show. “It was not almost perfect.”
