Newt Gingrich on "Meet the Press" Says Obama Can't Pay for ObamaCare without Taking from Medicare or Massive Tax Increases - Video 9/13/09
Here is video of Newt Gingrich on Meet the Press today talking about President Obama's pledge not to add one dime to the deficit with his Health Care legislation.
Gingrich said Obama is going to take $200 billion away from Medicare Advantage in order to try and pay for his plan. But Gingrich said American know instinctively that you cannot undertake a massive Government Program like Obama is suggesting without ballooning the deficit, or without "massive tax increases," which would further deepen the recession.
Gingrich is right on the mark here. Republicans need to keep hammering on how Obama can possibly pay for this boondoggle of all boondoggles.
