GOP's Shutdown Of The US Government Was A Planned Strategy! I Guess It's Just Business As Usual!
Jim Demint, President Of Heritage, Is Holding The US Government Hostage!
The only way to save face is to denounce The Heritage Institute (the Institute that started this whole Government Shutdown thing in the first place). You can't oppose/shutdown the government on the same kind of plan that your nominee for President used as his signature legislation in Massachusetts i.e RomneyCare. Which is also a conservative thinktank and ONLY makes market based plans. I thought the GOP was about Market Solutions. Apparently not!
Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich tussled on the question:
ROMNEY: Actually, Newt, we got the idea of an individual mandate from you.
GINGRICH: That’s not true. You got it from the Heritage Foundation.
ROMNEY: Yes, we got it from you, and you got it from the Heritage Foundation and from you.
GINGRICH: Wait a second. What you just said is not true. You did not get that from me. You got it from the Heritage Foundation.
ROMNEY: And you never supported them?
GINGRICH: I agree with them, but I’m just saying, what you said to this audience just now plain wasn’t true.
ROMNEY: OK. Let me ask, have you supported in the past an individual mandate?
GINGRICH: I absolutely did with the Heritage Foundation against Hillarycare.
ROMNEY: You did support an individual mandate?
ROMNEY: Oh, OK. That’s what I’m saying. We got the idea from you and the Heritage Foundation.
GINGRICH: OK. A little broader.
(Romney was prepared to go on, but Michele Bachmann, in her usual role as the person who makes the debates less useful, interjected and changed the subject. Here’s a YouTube video of the entire debate. The Gingrich-Romney exchange begins at the 27:38 mark.)
