Mark Levin said Newt had nothing to do with developing supply-side economics. Here’s a snippet from the audio:
I like Newt Gingrich a lot. But he had nothing to do with the development of supply-side economics. …It pre-dated his election to the House by several years. So he didn’t help Ronald Reagan develop supply-side economics. He wasn’t even on Ronald Reagan’s radar at the time. I’m not trying to be controversial or rude, but I want you to know the facts.
He then took a caller who challenged him on the fact that Art Laffer said on Fox News that Newt was involved in it, but Levin stood his ground and said it just isn’t possible. He said Newt may have promoted it as a Congressman, which he deserves credit for, but Reagan ran on supply-side economics and that he was talking about it in 1974.
