Perry on Hannity's Radio Show, Now

Or scheduled to be, within minutes. Hit "Listen Live" to stream it.

Supported... HillaryCare in 1993? Perry says no, but that's the claim.

In a letter to Clinton, who is now U.S. Secretary of State, Perry wrote: “I think your efforts in trying to reform the nation’s health care system are most commendable.”

“I would like to request that the task force give particular consideration to the needs of the nation’s farmers, ranchers, and agriculture workers, and other members of rural communities,” Perry continued, noting his administration’s focus on economic development for rural Texans. “Rural populations have a high proportion of uninsured people, rising health care costs, and often experience lack of services.”

“Again, your efforts are worthy,” Perry concluded, ”and I hope you will remember this constituency as the task force progresses.”

Perry's response is that this was written early in the process, before the extent of Hillary's proposed "reforms" were made public. He claims that as Commissioner of Agriculture, it was his duty to remind Washington about his constituency (farmers).
