Newt On Tiffany's Bill: Obama Could Learn From My Personal Finances


Gingrich noted in an interview with Face the Nation on CBS on Sunday that he was a "frugal" person. Today, he attributed the Tiffany's bill to his family's generosity towards its loved ones.

"I'm happy to say I love my wife, we love many of our family and friends, and we try to be very good to a range of people," he said. "God has been very good to us and we've been very successful."

He added that as a self-made small business owner, his wealth was a boost to the economy.

"It's the opposite of the Obama model, we actually are creating jobs and putting people to work," he said.
