Chris Christie on Growth

February 13, 2013 1 minute Read by Robert Asahina

Governor Chris Christie's keynote speech on the second evening of the Republican National Convention stressed the "hard truths" that we need to confront in order to "put us back on a path to growth." Speaking with the authority of a state leader who forged a bipartisan coalition to achieve "three balanced budgets in a row with lower taxes," Christie charged that "the math of federal spending does not add up." What is required is leadership to "cut government spending and fundamentally reduce the size of government." Christie's comments echo his remarks at the 4% Growth Project's conference on tax policies and economic growth, held this spring in New York. Watch a video of his speech from that conference here.
