Rick Perry says big government hasn't helped America economically and would like Washington to understand that it's doing too much. (4:02)

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: WE'RE BACK WITH

GOVERNOR PERRY.

IN YOUR MIND WHEN DID WASHINGTON

GOOD OFF THE RAILS?

>> A-A CENTURY AGO ACTUALLY

LITERALLY.

>> Jon: SERIOUSLY?

>> WILSON AND THE PROGRESSIVE

MOVEMENT STARTED THE 16th

AMENDMENT.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHEN

WASHINGTON GOT OFF THE TRACK IS

THE 16th AMENDMENT GIVING THEM

THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE YOUR

MONEY WITH THE INCOME TAX.

THAT'S THE REASON CLIFF LEE IS

STAYING IN TEXAS.

YOU THEY THAT?

>> Jon: HE DOESN'T REALIZE

YOU'RE A YANKEE HERE.

>> OW!

>> Jon: THERE ARE VERY FEW

PEOPLE THAT WOULD GOOD TO BOOK A

A PRE1920 UNITED STATES.

>> SURE.

>> Jon: THAT MOVEMENT DIDN'T

ARISE OUT OF NOTHING.

CHILDREN WORKED IN STPABGTRYS.

WOMEN WERE NOT ALLOWED TO VOTE.

THERE WAS AN AWFUL LOT THERE

THAT --

>> I GET THAT.

[LAUGHTER]

SKWROFRPLGTS YOU MAY GET IT BUT

THAT AIN'T RIGHT!

>> THE FACT IS THEN YOU HAD THE

GREAT DEPRESSION.

AGAIN GOVERNMENT PROGRAM AFTER

GOVERNMENT PROGRAM THAT LOOKING

BACK ON IT NOW DIDN'T WORK.

YOU GO INTO -- BIG GOVERNMENT

HAS REALLY NOT HELPED THIS

COUNTRY FROM THE STANDPOINT OF

ECONOMICALLY.

COMPETENT STEUGS HOW WE --

COMPETITION IS HOW WE BECOME

STRONG.

>> Jon: YOU SAID TO ME TEXAS

HAS GIRLFRIEND A NUMBER -- HAS

GAINED 153 --

>> 153 BUSINESSES HAVE MOVED OUT

OF CALIFORNIA TO TEXAS SINCE THE

FIRST OF THE YEAR THROUGH

AUGUST.

850,000 JOBS WERE CREATED IN THE

TEXAS IN THE DECADE OF 2000.

FOUR OUT OF FIVE PRIVATE SECTOR

JOBS NOW CREATED IN TEXAS.

>> Jon: WHY?

>> BECAUSE WE LET PEOPLE KEEP

MORE OF THEIR MONEY.

WE HAVE A TAX STRUCTURE THAT IS

FAIR AND PREDICABLE.

A LEGAL SYSTEM THAT DOESN'T

ALLOW FOR OVERSUING AND AN

ACCOUNTABLE PUBLIC SCHOOL

SYSTEM.

>> Jon: COULDN'T YOU MAKE THE

SAME ARGUMENT FOR COMPANIES

GOING TO INDIA AND CHINA.

IF YOU ARE THE PRESSURE VALVE

RELEASE FOR COMPANIES IN

CALIFORNIA WOULD YOU CRITICIZE

TEXAS COMPANIES --

>> DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN INDIA

OR TEXAS?

>> Jon: FOR REAL?

[LAUGHTER]

I REAM -- REALLY LIKE WHERE I

LIVE NOW BUT THANK THANK YOU.

WHAT I'M WONDERING IS THIS.

YOU TALKED ABOUT THE PROGRESSIVE

INCOME TAX THAT WILSON DID BUT

THE FACT OF CONGRESS BEING ABLE

TO LEVY TAXES WAS THE

CONSTITUTION.

WE HAD THE ARTICLES OF THE

CONFEDDATION.

YOU MIGHT BE MORE COMFORTABLE

WITH THE UNITED STATES IN THE

ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION.

>> I WOULD LIKE WASHINGTON TO DO

THEIR BASIC RESPONSIBILITY LIKE

SECURE THE BORDER WITH MEXICO.

I HAD FIVE CITIZENS KILLED LAST

WEEK.

I'VE ASKED TWO ADMINISTRATIONS

TO BUT PUT THE BOOTS ON THE GROUND

TO SECURE THAT BORDER.

THAT SAY BASE RESPONSIBILITY.

YOU LOOK OVER IN ARTICLE 4 OF

THE CONSTITUTION IT'S TO PROTECT

AND DEFEND IT.

THEY ARE NOT DOING IT.

I'VE ASKED THIS SECRETARY OF

HOMELAND SECURITY AND BASICALLY

GOT THE ANSWER OF LISTEN, PERRY,

IF YOU WANT NATIONAL GUARD

TROOPS ON THE BORDER SEND THEM

YOURSELF AND PAY FOR THEM.

>> Jon: SHE DIDN'T EVEN SAY

MISTER OR GOVERNOR.

LISTEN TO ME MR. P.

>> I GET THAT A LOT.

>> Jon: WE'LL TAKE A

COMMERCIAL.

DO YOU HAVE FIVE MINUTES?

>> YES
