BETTENDORF, Iowa (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry says if elected he would end lifetime appointments for federal judges and slash the pay for members of Congress in half.

Rolling out a plan to overhaul Washington, the Texas governor also calls for requiring a two-thirds vote in Congress for any tax increases. He also would halt all proposed federal regulations.

Perry claims his plan is far more aggressive than any of the other Republicans who are challenging him for right to go up against President Barack Obama next November.

He says his plan would jumpstart the economy.

Perry discussed his ideas at a heating and cooling company in Iowa on Tuesday.
