2. Perry is a champion of the 10th Amendment and federalism. In his book, " Fed UP", he writes
" If federalism is respected, the people of Massachusetts are free to try ( Romneycare ) while the rest of the nation sits back and watches to see if they have any success."
3. Perry's early support of HillaryCare in 1993. He said in his letter to Mrs Clinton, " I think your efforts in trying to reform the nation's healthcare system are most commendable."

4. Perry's Executive MANDATED Gardisil vaccination was at HIS order, not the legislatures , which subsequently passed legislation killing the Governor's own plan. This was a PERSONAL mandate by Rick Perry
Finally, the Globe points out that GOP support for national healthcare reform has tripled in the last year from 8 % to 24 %.
