Since Newt is the politician most repsonsible for balancing the federal budget in the 1990's his advice is the most credible for todays leaders. Minnesota's leaders are a test case for the future of our country. Do we live within our means or force business to move to more forward looking states/countries?
A republican like Gingrich speaking about debt ceiling is like a republican like Gingrich speaking about the sanctity of marriage. Once again Captain Hypocrite speaks complete gibberish.
"Since Newt is the politician most repsonsible for balancing the federal budget in the 1990's his advice is the most credible for todays leaders."---great, can't wait to see him skyrocket up those GOP polls.
It would be nice if people could justify tax increases or decreases, program cuts besides saying it feels like that there should be cuts. If our political leaders ever followed through their campaign promises of looking at each program to reevaluate if it is still working or has to be adjusted we would not be in the situation today.
Do the nation a favor Newt. Go, with your wife, away. I don't care where, though my choice would be someplace without an atmosphere.
"To non-partisans, the idea of taming the deficit by spending cuts alone flies against both common sense and arithmetic. America’s tax-take is not high either by international or its own historical standards. One commission after another has advocated mixing spending reductions and revenue increases. Without the latter, entitlement programmes will have to be eviscerated, even if, as now looks possible, the defence budget takes a share of the pain. But the Republicans will not budge from their dogma."
Straight from the Economist, a fiscally conservative publication! Anyone with any common sense can see the Republican dogma for what it is, a dogma! Am I the only one that reads? Every news source outside of the U.S. and not dedicated to supply-side economy theory says the same thing. I feel like I am in the twilight zone.
