Rick Perry: ‘Taken Aback’ By Cheers for ‘Let Them Die’ at Debate
Rick Perry was emotionless last week when faced with the 234 executions Texas has carried out on his watch. But he told reporters in Florida Tuesday that the audience cheer in support of the idea of letting the uninsured die at the CNN/Tea Party Express debate freaked even him out a little.
‘I was a bit taken aback by that myself,’ Perry said to reporters from NBC News and the Miami Herald in Tampa Tuesday.
‘We’re the party of life,’ Perry said. ‘We ought to be coming up with ways to save lives.’
