Gov. Rick Perry stopped off in the Alamo City on Tuesday for a bite of barbecue and a bit of promotion for his new book — and called for completely repealing President Barack Obama’s health care legislation while he was at it.
In his 12-minute speech at Augie’s Barbed Wire Smokehouse Bar-B-Que near Brackenridge Park, Perry took on the federal government, from health care reform to Social Security. Perry pushed for a repeal of Obama’s health care legislation “in its entirety.”
“You can’t go through this piece by piece. You need to repeal it in its entirety,” he said. “Then let’s have them start anew from the premise that the states can better handle these questions.”
