“Rather than heeding the false promise of a government-dominated economy, Poland sought to stimulate innovation, attract investment, expand trade, and live within its means,” Romney said in a speech in Warsaw. “Your success today is a reminder that the principles of free enterprise can propel an economy and transform a society.”
Like with many things Romney says, he managed to neglect several, slightly important little details about Poland. Details such as:
- The government provides families with $300 for every baby Polish mommies pop out.
- The government fully funds State university education.
- Poland has government expenditure as a percentage of GDP being 44%, as opposed to 41% in the U.S.
- Oh, and Poland also has universal health care.
