Forward Progressives — Rick Perry’s Idiocy Strikes Again as He Calls the Implementation of ‘Obamacare’ a Criminal Act
There’s no polite way to put it—Rick Perry is an idiot. In fact, he’s so totally clueless that he actually believes he has a real chance at becoming president in 2016. Outside of a handful of his supporters, and probably his family, no one in their right mind believes he has any legitimate shot at even winning the GOP nomination, let alone the presidency.
The key part of that last sentence is “in their right mind”—which Perry clearly is not.
A perfect example of this can be seen in his comments about the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”), where he said that to implement the law would be a “criminal act” to our future generations.
His exact words were:
“If this health care law is forced upon this country, the young men and women in this audience are the ones who are really going to pay the price. And that, I will suggest to you, reaches to the point of being a felony toward them and their future. That is a criminal act, from my perspective, to put that type of burden on them, to mortgage their future like that. America cannot stand that. America cannot accept that.”
