Conservative voices agree - Rick Perry's tax plan is a bold step in the right direction.
Rush Limbaugh calls it "fabulous" and "a return to fiscal sanity."
Mark Levin says Rick Perry "has come up with one hell of a proposal."
The Club for Growth adds, "Rick Perry's plan for tax reform would be massively pro-growth. Conservatives looking for a champion will surely rally behind this bold proposal."
The Wall Street Journal says that Rick Perry is "thinking big."
"I'm Rick Perry. Washington's establishment doesn't get it."
"We're not going to fix things by tinkering around the edges."
"We need a complete overhaul of our tax system and government if we're going to create jobs."
"My optional 20 percent flat tax is so simple you can file it on a postcard."
"My plan balances the budget and makes the IRS irrelevant in your life."
ANNOUNCER: Rick Perry. President.
"I'm Rick Perry and I approve of this message."

"Rick Perry announced his tax plan today, which I'll go on record as saying I, El Rushbo, think is great. It's fabulous. I like it. ... This is why a lot of people are going to like it. It is a return to fiscal sanity."
Rush Limbaugh on "The Rush Limbaugh Show," 10/25/11
"This program he's come up with is a great program, this tax plan. ... Perry has come up with one hell of a proposal."
Mark Levin on "The Mark Levin Show," 10/25/11
"Rick Perry's plan for tax reform would be massively pro-growth. A Flat Tax like the one proposed by Perry would unleash years of economic growth if it is passed into law. Furthermore, eliminating the tax on dividends and capital gains would immediately add trillions of dollars in new wealth to the economy, benefiting all Americans. Perry clearly understands that revitalizing the economy should start with a complete overhaul of a tax code that has nearly choked economic growth to death. Conservatives looking for a champion to carry the banner of a pro-growth tax reform will surely rally behind this bold proposal."
Club for Growth President Chris Chocola, 10/25/11
"The good news is that Mr. Perry and most of his competitors are thinking big, with proposals that will reverse the U.S. slide to high-debt, slow-growth stagnation. President Obama wants to portray the economic debate as pro-growth government spenders vs. the austerity of budget cutting. But the real debate is over whether government or the private economy is the main engine of prosperity. The flat tax puts Republicans on the side of private growth and government reform, a potent combination. Perhaps Mr. Perry and his comrades can even coax Mitt Romney to join the party."
