Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “While we have no doubt that Governor Romney would move the country in a pro-growth direction overall, we have serious concerns over his governing philosophy.”
Washington, DC - The Club for Growth today released its fifth Presidential White Paper for 2012. The fifth paper is an analysis of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney’s record on economic freedom.
“While we have no doubt that Governor Romney would move the country in a pro-growth direction overall, we have serious concerns over his governing philosophy,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “After a career in business, quickly finding a ‘solution’ to every problem is his goal, even if it means more government intrusion as a means to an end. To this day, Governor Romney supports big government solutions to health care and opposes pro-growth tax code reform – positions that are simply opposite to those supported by true economic conservatives. How much Governor Romney’s philosophy of governance will affect his policy goals if elected, we leave for the voters to decide.”
