On Fox News Sunday today, Rick Perry spoke of his fun moment with fellow candidate Mitt Romney last night when Romney joked to Perry that they should hold a ten thousand dollar bet to settle once and for all whether Romney is a flip-flopper on the health care individual mandate or not. Perry said he thought it was “out-of touch” for joking about betting with that much money, considering that his wealth has been a sticking point with voters all throughout the campaign.
Perry continued to insist that Romney has, in the past, supported the individual mandate in a book he wrote years ago. Wallace asked Perry the difference between his support of a mandatory HPV vaccine and an individual health care mandate, to which Perry responded that there was an “opt-out” system embedded into his executive order and admitted the Texas legislature told him he had gone too far.
