Gingrinch, Stop Negotiating

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Wednesday that House Republicans should stop negotiating with President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats on the fiscal cliff, saying that by doing so, they give Obama all of the leverage in the talks.

“One of the things I would say to House Republicans is to get a grip,” Gingrich said in a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.

“They are the majority. They’re not the minority,” he said, enunciating the words as if explaining the concept to someone who did not understand it. “They don’t need to cave in to Obama; they don’t need to form a ‘Surrender Caucus.’”

“So my number one bit of advice to the congressional Republicans is simple: Back out of of all of this negotiating with Obama. The president is overwhelmingly dominant in the news media. You start setting up the definition of success finding an agreement with Obama, you just gave Obama the ability to say to you, ‘Not good enough,’” Gingrich said.

    He just writes another Executive Order. As it is now….Since the “Peaceful Martial Law”, the House and Senate, basically, work FOR him.
    They no longer represent us….they are now HIS CZARS.

    these “representatives” dont represent anyone but themselves. The RNC is the Minority, so let them own their cliff, back off let them pass what they are going to pass and let them reap what they sow.

      THIS TIME they ALL need to fight back. Our Country IS on the verge of a complete financial collapse.
      You can address the other issues. I will only address a specific population. This is JUST a small portion of the country.

      Do you know what would happen to just the Senior Citizens alone who “live” totally from the Social Security; and they can’t be hired IF their health is bad to make up the difference?
      They can lose their homes. Where would they go?

        yep that’s people like me…

      • I understand that better than most, my husband is disabled and he is unable to work, he is in that same group of disabled. And I do not want harm to come to them or any others that truly NEED the assistance they have paid for with their years of work. The SSDI is a broken system, SS and Medicare is not only for the those that have paid into the system, thats part of the reason this is a mess to begin with.

        I can and do appreciate your response, but the whole system is broken and there are more problems than answers in DC.
