Perry to unveil plan today to "uproot" the three branches of government

Perry said his reform proposal will target “lifetime federal judges who arrogantly rewrite our laws from the bench,” as well as the “permanent bureaucracy of the executive branch, which thwarts the will of the American people to advance a big government agenda.” And he pledged to outline “dramatic reforms for a Congress that not only spends too much but is IN Washington too much.”

The Texas governor, who rode an anti-Washington wave to victory in his 2010 gubernatorial re-election race, noted that the DC metro area has not suffered from the same recession that closed stores on Main Streets all over the country.

“That’s because all those lobbyists, that’s because all those overpaid czars and bureaucrats haven’t suffered one bit while we’ve been going through one of the worst economies that this country’s ever seen,” he said.
