Club for Growth

Club for Growth is out with its assessment of Mitt Romney. It is not the glowing, near endorsement of Giuliani , nor is it the indictment it doled out to Huckabee, but there is a little something for everyone. It labels his record ” generally good” and says they are “reasonably optimistic” he would enact a p[ro-growth agenda. They praise his support for free trade, low regulation, tort reform and school choice. However they also have some harsh words saying his history is “marked with statements at odds” with his record as Governor. The report continues: “His strident opposition to the flat tax; his refusal to endorse the Bush tax cuts in 2003; his support for various minor tax hikes; and his once-radically bad views on campaign finance reform all cast some doubts on the extent and durability of his commitment to limited-government, pro-growth policies.” As for healthcare, Club for Growth says it displayed “a mixture of desirable pro-free market efforts combined with a regrettable willingness to accept, if not embrace, a massive new regulatory regime.” Worth a full read.
