Perry Zeroes in on Congressional ’12ers

In new 30-second TV spot, Texas topper continues anti-Washington-focused ad blitz, targeting Bachmann’s, Gingrich’s, Santorum’s and Paul’s Capitol Hill tenures.

Announcer: “If Washington’s the problem, why trust a congressman to fix it?”

Read the script below.

Announcer: “If Washington’s the problem, why trust a congressman to fix it? Among them, they’ve spent 63 years in Congress, leaving us with debt, earmarks, and bailouts. Congressmen get $174,000 a year and you get the bill. We need a solution.”

Gov. Perry: “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.”
