“Based on available studies that we have seen of state budgets and stimulus funding, Texas Governor (and vocal stimulus critic) Rick Perry was the governor who relied most on the stimulus to balance his state’s budget. Whether he was first among 35 governors or 50, the claim we make that he is a spending hypocrite should be rated “100% true.”
