Protesting Perry

By Ray Duckler / Monitor staff

October 29, 2011

Protesters stood outside Secretary of State Bill Gardner's office yesterday while Texas Gov. Rick Perry filed for the state's primary.

Jillian Dubois, a 25-year-old Chichester native now living in Hudson, held a sign that read, "6.3 million uninsured Texans can't be wrong."

She said she has no faith in Perry's health care policies. "It's a disappointment that a candidate like Rick Perry would come out and say the federal government shouldn't be doing anything about health care and we should rely on the states to do it," Dubois said. "Clearly with 25 percent of their citizens uninsured, the states aren't doing a very good job."
