[Music, SFX] Male Announcer: The fox guarding the henhouse is like asking a Congressman to fix Washington: bad idea.
Their years in Congress left us with debt, bailouts.
Congressmen get paid $174,000 a year. We get the bill.
We need a solution.
Perry (clip from debate): That’s the reason I’ve called for a part-time Congress. Cut their pay in half, cut their time in Washington in half, cut their staff in half, send them home. Let them get a job like everybody else back home has.
Perry (voiceover): I’m Rick Perry, and I approve this message.
Notes: From the press release...
“Senator Santorum, Congressmen Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann have long backed congressional earmarks and pork. Expecting them to overhaul Washington is asking a fox to guard the henhouse,” said Perry campaign spokesman Ray Sullivan. “Rick Perry never served in Washington and has strongest, most credible plan to overhaul Washington by creating a part-time Congress and cutting their pay, staff, and meeting time in half.”
