According to the campaign when the idea was announced last August, "The idea behind a Tenth Amendment enforcement act, Gingrich said, would be to kick federal regulations — and the resulting paperwork — back to the states, something he said could save money on both the state and federal side."
I think the idea is a good one and is clearly needed and I think Rick Perry is a great leader for the project. But let's illustrate one of the MAJOR problems with politicians of all parties and all political ideologies. This was the subject of a previous post on this blog (If you run for office, quit your day job!). If Texas Governor Rick Perry really is a small government conservative who really believes, as he says, that taxpayers are over taxed then he will announce his resignation this week from the Governorship of Texas to work on the Gingrich campaign to head up the 10th Amendment Project.
