Wolfeboro, New Hamsphire – It started at the tank.
Speaking about the contrast between himself and Romney, Gingrich described voters as facing a choice between a “bold Reagan conservative” and a “timid Massachusetts moderate.”
He accused Romney of hiking taxes by $730 million, “most of them in the form of fees, which were, by the way, mandatory.”
“The two that are most amazing is he actually [imposed] … a tax on people who were blind. Which is a little hard to imagine, but true,” Gingrich said, referencing a $10 fee required to obtain a certificate of blindness. “The other was a tax on gun ownership. He quadrupled the cost of owning a gun, so you had to register guns in Massachusetts and then you had to pay $100 per gun every year under Romney.”
The take-away? Gingrich is ready to aggressively hit Romney in tonight’s debate.
