Rick Perry Gives a Shoutout to Millennials in His Presidential Campaign Announcement

He'll fix the entitlement system for you, he says.

Rick Perry addressed young Americans as he announced Thursday he is running for the Republican nomination for president.

From the former Texas governor's prepared remarks, e-mailed by his campaign:

Debt is not just a fiscal nightmare, it is a moral failure. Let me speak to the millennial generation: massive debt, passed on from our generation to yours, is a breaking of the social compact.

You deserve better. I am going to offer a responsible plan to fix the entitlement system, and to stop this theft from your generation.

Perry announced his second run for the White House outside Dallas.
