Club for Growth Raves Over Perry Plan

Chris Chocola, Club for Growth president, called Rick Perry’s new tax plan “massively pro-growth” in a statement today.

“Rick Perry’s plan for tax reform would be massively pro-growth. A Flat Tax like the one proposed by Perry would unleash years of economic growth if it is passed into law,” Chocola said in a statement. “Furthermore, eliminating the tax on dividends and capital gains would immediately add trillions of dollars in new wealth to the economy, benefiting all Americans. Perry clearly understands that revitalizing  the economy should start with a complete overhaul of a tax code that has nearly choked economic growth to death. Conservatives looking for a champion to carry the banner of a pro-growth tax reform will surely rally behind this bold proposal.”

Chocola also took a jab at Mitt Romney in his statement, saying he was “disappointed that Governor Romney has yet to embrace a flat or fair tax.”

“He would be wise to avoid using class warfare when comparing his current proposals to those of Governor Perry or Herman Cain,” Chocola added.
