Continuing on the back of promising $2.50/gallon gas to all Americans, Newt Gingrich added another promise to his list. He plans on making sure Americans will be able to purchase any large pizza of their liking for only $1.50.
Teaming up with Herman Cain, the former presidential candidate and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Gingrich has started to plan his new pizza strategy. He feels every American should have access to affordable pizza, one of America’s favorite foods.
Every American deserves affordable pizza. That’s why I’ve devised a plan to bring the price of a large pizza down to $1.50. It’s the right thing to do, and it’s what needs to be done. I’m the man to make this happen. President Obama would prefer you pay upwards of $35 a pizza. That’s outlandish and puts pizza out of reach for those that need it for their Friday night meals, Super Bowl parties, and as an after drinking must-have. If you vote for me, I will write an executive order to make this happen immediately. Pizza should be for everybody!!”
The former Speaker has not detailed his plan, but he assures his supporters that he will undoubtedly be able to make this happen. No word just yet from popular pizza chains and mom and pop shop pizzerias concerning how they feel about this new $1.50 plan. However speculation of their reaction depicts that they won’t be too terribly thrilled with the idea. It will most likely dig into their profits and ability to buy the supplies needed to make the pizzas.
Many assume that this is just another empty campaign promise made by the establishment Republican, but who’s to say? Maybe he knows something we don’t… or maybe he just likes pizza.
