Jim's a big boy. I think he can handle it. Jim is actually in agreement with me about Newt's plan to replace Obamacare with something else (i.e. Gingrichcare).
In my appraisal, Newt Gingrich has done most to advance the conservative agenda in the years since Ronald Reagan's Farewell Address and today.
I do not share that assessment, nor do I consider it to be a fair substitute for executive leadership ability. We owe Newt Gingrich nothing. We need a President who will cut back government to 20% of GDP. Unfortunately, Newt Gingrich is not that type of President. His proposal to replace Obamacare with some other federal insurance program is quite unsettling to me. And his stances on illegal immigration and global warming are anything but conservative.
If you think you 'owe' it to Newt, then vote for him. But I will be voting instead for someone who believes government is the problem, not the solution.
Where is Gingrichcare?
As far as I’ve seen, Newt wants to repeal ObamaCare and send Medicare back to the states and the people per the 10th amendment. He wants tort reform and he wants to make private insurance portable throughout the states. He encourages individuals to purchase their own healthcare coverage and would make insurance premiums tax deductible for individuals. He’s for privatized healthcare accounts.
