80. It seems that there is unnecessary distortion; the truth is bad enough.
Rawstory posts a video of the event: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/12/08/gingrich-5-year-o... /

After enduring the agony of listening to Newt's distortions regarding Social Security (also on the tape), and inanities regarding child labor (a simultaneous assault on labor unions), I believe that the headline from the OP's link (addictinginfo) is not accurate. Newt discusses 5- and 6-year-old kids doing chores for relatives for money: not the same as recommending they replace janitors. The truth, that he recommends that kids replace janitors, is bad enough.

Furthermore, I believe Newt's "facts" on janitors in New York are wrong. The information I located indicates that the mean annual income of New York janitors is $28,100, whereas but the average starting salary of New York teachers is $37,321.

In conclusion, Newt is a major-league schmuck.
