Texas Gov Rejects Stimulus Money

Texas Governor Rick Perry said "No Thanks" to $555 Million in Federal Simulus money. Perry, an outspoken critic of President Barack Obama's $787 billion stimulus bill, did accept most of the roughly $17 billion slated for Texas in the plan.
Other Governors have threatened the same action, but to date I do not think any have actually turned down the money. Now I guess the People of the State of Texas will have to decide if Perry is thinking of them or his own political gains.
