Mike George, the founder of Strong America Now, and a super PAC that uses the same name, has replied to TheIowaRepublican.com. George is under fire for backing just one candidate, Newt Gingrich, when his bi-partisan group actually gave three candidates “A” grades. The Strong America Now Super PAC is attacking Mitt Romney on behalf of Newt Gingrich’s campaign. According to NBC News, Gingrich said yesterday that he would publicly repudiate any super PAC that goes negative in an effort to boost him.
Below is George’s statement to TheIowaRepublican.com
As the founder of Strong America Now, I never intended to found a super PAC. Our goal was to show all candidates the results of waste reduction achieved by the Army and Navy using Lean Six Sigma, which appear at www.strongamericanow.org and prove that every federal process contains at least 25% waste.
Applied across the entire government would reduce spending by more than $500 billion per year. Together with the $500 billion per year spending reductions of Bowles Simpson the deficit would be eliminated by 2017 and the financial crisis predicted be David stockman prevented. Romney is the only major candidate who only plans to cut spending by $500 billion per year, leaving us with a catastrophic $500 billion per year deficit.
His action compelled me to warn Iowans of the danger posed by a President Romney. To sound this alarm, I was forced to found the super PAC. I have the greatest respect for Romney’s business skill and successfully invested with him in Preferred Technical Group in which Lean Six Sigma was a major part of success.
I was very disappointed with his decision.
