Gov. Perry Wants To Freeze Higher Education Tuition
RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 25, 2012
Dear Editor, Rick Perry is a sham and an enemy of the people. There is no nicer way of saying it. Several years ago, Gov. Perry led the charge to deregulate higher education tuition. Immediately after Texas legislators approved the bill, and after uneducated (about the issue) and/or special-interest-driven voters voted for the deregulation in a public referendum, the University of Texas raised its tuition at least six times, and other institutions followed suit. Now, Perry wants Texans to believe that he really cares about the high tuition at colleges and universities when the damage is already done and most Texas families can't afford tuition costs. He wants to freeze the sky-rocketed costs, now that it's too late. People really need to see Perry for what he is, a self-serving, patronizing, and special-interest-supporting part-time governor, who now earns more than any other governor in the U.S. Send Perry scurrying off into real retirement. In 2014 Texans must vote in someone for governor who really cares about our community.
