Announcer: Reckless spending has led to a 15 trillion dollar national debt. That’s 50,000 dollars of debt for every person in America… and it’s crushing our economic recovery. And what’s does Newt Gingrich suggest? Spending half a trillion dollars on a moon colony.
Newt Gingrich: By the end of my second term we will have the first permanent base on the moon. When we have 13,000 living on the moon, they can petition to become a state.
Annoucer: Gingrich’s idea is fiscal insanity. And another reason true conservatives are uniting behind Rick Santorum. Unlike Gingrich, Santorum opposed all the bailouts. And Rick Santorum successfully reformed welfare, and has fought tirelessly for a balanced budget amendment. Rick Santorum…he doesn’t just talk a good conservative game…he lives it.
