Things Rick Perry Should Already Know
I would like to remind Governor Rick Perry of Texas that states already have the ability to opt out of Social Security. They've had that option since Social Security was enacted in way back in 1935. As one of the longest serving governors in this nation, one who has spent more than 20 years in statewide elected office, he should know that already.
Moreover, if Governor Perry believes that Social Security is a "Ponzi scheme," as he argued recently, then I must ask why hasn't he protected Texans by opting out of it already?
