Newt: I Care About Very Poor 'Unlike Governor Romney'

Taking advantage of Romney’s “poor” gaff today in Las Vegas, Newt Gingrich laid out his plan for helping Americas poor.

“I really believe that we should care about the very poor, unlike Governor Romney. But I believe we should care differently than Barack Obama,” Gingrich said Thursday. “Both Governor Romney and Barack Obama seem to believe that a quote ‘safety net’ is all the poor need. I don’t believe that. What the poor need is a trampoline so that they can spring up…. So I’m for replacing the safety net with a trampoline.”
