    this is what Mr. Gingrich's economic plan looks like:

    1. Change the Federal Reserve's dual mission 2 solely focus on controlling inflation.
    2. Eliminate the Capital Gains Tax.
    3. Allow taxpayers an option of keeping their current income tax rate, or a 15% flat tax rate.
    4. Cut corporate tax rates from the current 35% to 12.5%.
    5. Repeal the Dodd-Frank financial reform law.

    Nothing from the "Contract On America" ever became law... It was an election season prop that resulted in no substantive policy change.

    To be fair, a good portion of Gingrich's time was spent on zealously pursuing the impeachment of President Clinton for an extra-marital affair... and Gingrich also had to find time for his own extra-marital affair with his long-term mistress at the same time.
    I don't know if that was wife #2 or #3, I can't keep them all straight.
    Who has time for policy?

    Well, you have to give him credit for finding the time for his own extramarital affair when he was so busy chasing his mistress and pouting about seating on Air Force One.

    Interesting example of how "lying under oath" becomes "had an extra-marital affair." But that's the liberal mind at "work" for all to see.


    Irrelevant as the lawyers had no right to inquire about Clinton's personal sexual matters. Unless you want us to look into yours. icon_cool.gif

    What about the oath Gingrich took each time he was married to be faithful to his wife? Why weren't those oaths important?
    After all, we know how deeply religious he is and so concerned with the sanctity of marriage. icon_lol.gif

    All of that looks good, but he really needs to add in eliminating the death tax.

    Unless you're running for president in the United States, in which case it's exactly the opposite of what large majorities want.

    If someone works hard all their life and wants to leave their family some money then they should Damn well be allowed. The money was already taxed once.

    You're entitled to your opinion but it's inconsistent with most American's views on these matters. Americans want taxes raised on the wealthy to pay for the debt and ensure that vital services are maintained. Two governors, including NY's who had vowed to not raise taxes on the rich, have since proposed doing just that.
