Perry’s Texas a lot like China
Re: July 16 article “Audit finds hefty workers’ comp backlog.”
Gov. Rick Perry brags that businesses rate Texas as the No. 1 place to do business in the U.S. The article exposing the lack of enforcement of physicians abusing or defrauding workers’ compensation is one example of Perry creating a haven for businesses.
He appoints people to agencies who will not enforce fraud by businesses and insurance corporate attorneys to courts who rule almost 100 percent for businesses and against individuals. He brags that businesses pay low taxes while causing the $15 billion deficit and cutting 20,000 mentally ill Texans from receiving help.
His motive is simply that businesses fill his campaign coffers while the mentally ill and ordinary workers cannot. Perry’s Texas is a lot like China: a great place to be a business owner but a horrible place to be an ordinary worker.
