Good to see NRO is still making shit up.

Oh, this is rich.
The reason conservative governors such as Rick Perry have turned down federal aid during this cycle is that such aid forces state and local governments to commit to a higher baseline, which usually means higher taxes — I predict that nobody who is calling for the government to be anti-cyclical during this recession is going to suddenly start cheering for layoffs when the boom times return.

Other than balancing the state's $12B shortfall last year with stimulus money, yeah, he's totally turned down aid.

Please. Perry has turned the Lone Star State into a big welfare queen.
