Except for Newt Gingrich’s two mischaracterizations, credit unions haven’t come up as an issue in this election campaign so far.
I think that Newt Gingrich may be right about credit unions being government-sponsored enterprises. Consultant Dennis Dollar and others have criticized the presidential candidate and former speaker of the House for describing credit unions as GSEs.
Presidential candidate again misspeaks on credit unions, raising question if its intentional or lack of understanding. Either is troublesome.
Former House Speaker lumps credit unions with government-sponsored enterprises in Tampa debate.
