R.C. Hammond, Press Secretary, Newt 2012
Yesterday in Des Moines, Iowa, Speaker Gingrich lambasted the concept of the super committee as a "maniacally stupid" idea. "We should reject any effort to blackmail us into accepting a dumb idea on the grounds that in July we accepted an even dumber idea." The current model, with the prospect of $1.2 trillion in automatic cuts if no agreement is reached, will lead to really bad and destructive decisions. It is as though someone said: "I will be forced to shoot you in the head unless you let me cut off your leg."
Speaker Gingrich is in a unique position to criticize the super committee because during his tenure as Speaker, the federal government balanced the budget for four straight years, paid off more than $400 billion in publicly held debt, reformed welfare, and lowered taxes to stimulate economic growth. This fiscal discipline and government reform liberated the American people to create 11 million new jobs. Furthermore, after four years of Newt's leadership, the 10-year projected deficit of $2.7 trillion turned into a projection of $2.3 trillion in surplus!
Speaker Gingrich's bold plan will tackle the budget crisis through growth and innovation and includes five substantive policies:
This plan is far more thorough and sophisticated than anything proposed by any other candidate for president, and it's exactly what America needs at this very moment.
With the very real problems this country faces, we need a president with the knowledge, experience, and leadership to enact a plan to restore some sanity to the government's budgetary process!
