Concerning his nomination rival Mitt Romney, who has derided the flat tax in the past as a boon to “fat cats,” Mr. Perry said:
“Well I would said that he ought to go look in the mirror, I guess. I consider him to be a fat cat. I consider what Mitt’s doing kind of nibbling around the edges. I consider what we’re doing bold.”
On a related note, the Perry campaign is pushing Mitt Romney to release his tax returns.
