Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich went on Fox News on Thursday night to call on the American people to put pressure on their lawmakers to stop the spending bill.
During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Gingrich made it clear that even after all his years in politics, he feels that the stakes have never been higher than they are right now.
“Look, I mean, it should scare you,” he said. “This is an effort by big government socialists to profoundly change America. Even Joe Manchin has said in the last 24 hours he doesn’t want to change America and he — although he’s a Democrat—he said this bill is designed to profoundly change America, to create a welfare-dependency and I think it has stunned him as a West Virginian how far they’ve gone. I think that people need to realize this is not an accident.”
Gingrich was referring to the fact that even the Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has spoken out against this bill.
“These people are determined to take your money, to rebuild your country with them in control, and you see it right now in a fight over vaccines when, you know, schoolteachers are being fired, nurses are being fired, policemen are being fired,” Gingrich continued. “Do we really want more big government bureaucracies led by politicians totally out of touch with reality? “
Not stopping there, Gingrich proceeded to double down with a call to action.
“And I think, Sean, you’re exactly on target here,” Gingrich said. “Everybody watching tonight should call their congressmen, their senators, and demand that they stop these bills. It looks, right now, like Senator Sinema in Arizona and Senator Manchin are going to stop the bill in the Senate.”
“It looks right now — it may change—but likely left-wing of the Democratic Party there’s going to be an open rebellion in the House before the end of the week,” he concluded. “If all of that comes together, then these bills will collapse in their own weight. We did a poll in a project we’re doing called ‘The American Majority Project’ and, let me just say, only one out of every six Americans — one out of six — favors big government socialism.”
As per usual, Gingrich hit the nail on the head with his analysis of what is happening right now. This nonsense from the left has gone way too far, and America as we know it is now at stake.
