Republicans Lie, All the Time, About Everything: Newt Gingrich Ediition

Josh Marshall:

WTF, Newt? | Talking Points Memo: When I was watching the debate last night I did a double-take when I heard Newt say that ‘reforming’ the federal Civil Service system could save “a minimum of $500 billion a year.”… [T]he federal government’s entire payroll, even including the military, came to just $432.6 billion in fiscal 2011. In other words, if you fired everyone who works for the federal government you couldn’t save $500 billion.

Our requests for comment from the Newt campaign have yet to be returned.
