Phase Out Agonistes

Views

Fresh off Newt Gingrich calling Paul Ryan Medicare Phase Out Plan “right wing social engineering”, Ryan has struck back at Newt: “With allies like that, who needs the left?”

In a sense it’s less Ryan that Newt has hurt as a lot of freshman Republicans sitting in swing districts in the midwest. It’s a great pivot for thousands of Democratic ads: Congressman X voted for the plan that even Newt Gingrich called radical right wing social engineering.

Newt of course is already trying to walk it back.
