If you’re keeping score about what potential presidential contenders believe, mark this down for Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Perry appeared on a “Crossfire” panel with Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D), who said Illnois is grateful to President Barack Obama for “saving the American auto industry” and creating jobs in his state.

“And I still haven’t heard from Rick about the minimum wage,” Quinn added.

“I don’t think — I don’t think it’s government’s business to be setting the minimum wage out there,” Perry said. “And even the CBO said if you want to get rid of a half a million jobs between now and 2016, raise the minimum wage.”
