Rick Perry: Bailout Was Single Biggest Act Of Theft in American History

(By Alex Alvarez, Mediaite) - Yesterday, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry referred to the government’s $700 billion bailout of Wall Street as “the single biggest act of theft in American history,” reminding those gathered at an Iowa Pizza Ranch of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney‘s support for it while pointing to his own status as an “outsider”:

This Wall Street bailout was the single biggest act of theft in American history. And, you know, and Newt and Mitt, they both were for it. That’s one of the reasons that I say that if you really want an individual who is an outsider, who has not been engaged in that process up, there, I hope you will take look at me.
