Rick Perry hates big government and bashes the bailouts and the stimulus promoted by the Obama administration to help create jobs previously lost under President G. W. Bush. Yet, this article in the Texas Tribune outlines how much money Rick Perry took from the Obama Stimulus in order to pay for Texas programs and create over 40,000 jobs.

At a discussion featured above in the You Tube video from The Texas Tribune about Texas stimulus money, Perry says he doesn’t like federal money given to Texas with “strings” attached. Yet Perry is OK with “strings” attached to giving educational funds to school districts in Texas when he decides on the strings. He is OK with strings he likes…

Rick Perry seems to hate the things the federal government would do to help states to create jobs and stimulate the economy, the very government that enabled him to brag about how many jobs he created in Texas.

Could Rick Perry brag about how many jobs he created if he declined the $17.4 Billion he got from the 2009 Obama stimulus?
