Transcript for Green Room: Perry's Part-Time Plan
Rick Perry still hasn't been able to turn it around. As he tried and -- there's an -- -- congress part time job. Congressional aliens that it is. Considering. Consider that proposal. Mayors what it means things. Floyd. We're worried about government which is corrupted because people are thinking about their their future lobbyist jobs and worried about making money after -- leave office. Point cutting the salaries of congressman so they actually -- -- cannot make ends meet in the only. You can make a career being. A congressman in my plan on the U lot of money as a lobbyist with that's -- -- -- -- -- Well -- it went outside of. I think that is that is substantive argument -- which is that is probably politically for the Republican electorate is so mad at Washington and so upset -- it's actually pitch perfect. Now I think it comes too late for Rick Perry I think that his candidacy sort of floundered it all felt during debates is banned performance during them. But I think what he's saying. Is a is eight communicating a lot of what a lot of Republicans are thinking it's that we can just get out of Washington -- -- to the politicians to get down that we'd be much better -- so. Politically it's pitch perfect for the Republican electorate. They are congress. -- Sounds kind and it it appeals to me I would say let me look at that sort of political way I think. Governor Perry having had such a difficult time since the time he got into the since the moment -- got into the election. Having had it taken so many hits having come down -- the polls I feel like he's Condit at this point feeling kind of liberated by law office. He's saying when he wants he is coming up with plans that are bowl which if you were leading he might have been too careful to get you. I find that kind of -- -- like. It matters. To -- because congress that the in congress that the schedule and should in both cases. And the objective. Should mind his own business whoever's. -- reversed some operational. Practice that this happens he's governor of state for that has -- legislature only meets -- 140 days every two years. Which has -- over hundred billion dollar biennial budget. And so I think Wisconsin aren't you think well no way to do it control who's in charge -- there is some evidence that you could actually make it work. Comprehensive -- little easier but also its. Leslie -- -- used to say it in any building in Austin people's. These walls -- ears every member legislature would be in jail so I'd put the ethics of Austin. -- of the ethics in Washington DC. Cool wants with Mark Twain who said congressman is in recess the Republicans say.
