Newt Gingrich holds Campaign Rally at the Tennessee State Capital, Nashville, Tennessee where he was introduced by former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson.
Newt Gingrich has a life long history of accomplishment. His leadership in Washington helped save Medicare from going bankrupt and brought new attention to prevention, wellness, and research. In 1995 Time magazine claimed, Leaders make things possible. Exceptional leaders make them inevitable. Newt Gingrich belongs in the category of the EXCEPTIONAL.
“Newt is the only one of the candidates who has the RIGHT stuff.”
And the right plan for America.
Arthur Laffer: “Mr. Gingrich has a significantly better plan than does Mr. Romney, and he has twice before been instrumental in implementing a successful tax plan on a national levelonce when he served in Congress as a Reagan supporter in the 1980s and again when he was President Clinton’s partner as speaker of the House of Representatives in the 1990s. During both of these periods the economy prospered incrediblyin good part because of Mr. Gingrich.
Jobs and wealth are created by those who are taxed, not by those who do the taxing. Government, by its very nature, doesn’t create resources but redistributes resources. To minimize the damages taxes cause the economy, the best way for government to raise revenue is a broad-based, low-rate flat tax that provides people and businesses with the fewest incentives to avoid or otherwise not report taxable income, and the least number of places where they can escape taxation. On these counts it doesn’t get any better than Mr. Gingrich’s optional 15% flat tax for individuals and his 12.5% flat tax for business. Each of these taxes has been tried and tested and found to be enormously successful.
Imagine what would happen to international capital flows if the U.S. went from the second highest business tax country in the world to one of the lowest. Low taxes along with all of America’s other great attributes would precipitate a flood of new investment in this country as well as a quick repatriation of American funds held abroad. We would create more jobs than you could shake a stick at. And those jobs would be productive jobs, not make-work jobs like so many of Mr. Obama’s stimulus jobs.”
This WSJ article could be called “Laffer has the Last Laugh.”
Another smart guy who knows a smart guy when he sees one. And isn’t intimidated.
NEWT makes America look good, because America IS good.
