Club for Growth Hits Newt

by Brian Bolduc

In a statement to the press, Club for Growth president Chris Chocola hits Newt Gingrich’s comment that Mitt Romney made money from “no work”:

Newt Gingrich says he’s a student of history, but he must have gone to the same school as Barack Obama if he is reaching the same wrong conclusion about economic freedom. Mitt Romney made his money from putting capital to work to create jobs and economic growth. We should encourage, not criticize, such behavior. Newt Gingrich’s comment that Mitt Romney made money from ‘no work’ is ridiculous and continues his poisonous attack on economic freedom.
