Perry Preps Plan to “Uproot” Gov't

Facing plummeting popularity in polls, Texas Gov. Rick Perry gave a boost Monday night to his plans — set for unveiling Tuesday — for a major government overhaul should he win the presidency. "Tomorrow I'm going to unveil a plan to uproot all three branches of government and overhaul Washington," he said to a group of Republicans in Iowa. When Perry first entered the GOP presidential primary race, he enjoyed huge popularity among conservatives who appreciated his folksy, anti-Beltway message, but his repeated debate flubs have left many wondering how serious his policy aims — and candidacy — are. The Tuesday announcement appears intended to reverse those doubts. "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 commented.
