    Newt is flip flopping like a fish out of water. FLIP FLOP FLIP FLOP FLIP FLOP icon_lol.gif

    Newt Gingrich on Meet the Press acknowledged his past support for an individual health-insurance mandate:

    “I agree that all of us have a responsibility to help pay for health care. And I think that there are ways to do it that make most libertarians relatively happy. I've said consistently, where there's some requirement you either have health insurance or you post a bond or in some way you indicate you're going to be held accountable.”

    But now Gingrich is walking that back. In a video posted on his Web site, he says:

    "I am completely opposed to the Obamacare mandate on individuals. I fought it for two and half years at the Center for Health Transformation. You can see all the things we did to stop it at HealthTransformation.net. I am for the repeal of Obamacare and I am against any effort to impose a federal mandate on anyone because it is fundamentally wrong and I believe unconstitutional."

    You know ...........


    This is absolutely stunning the way these people have all basically lied through their freakin teeth over the last 3 years

    all of them Ginrich Hatch Grassly Snow Frist

    ........... and of course Romney had come out before praising and sometimes SIGNING on to bills that had a public mandate when it came to healthcare
    How the Whitehouse and the Democrats missed this last year when they were debating it is completely lost on me
