Gingrich: Fiscal Cliff Deal ‘Will Lead To A Profound Fight In The GOP’

In a report published by Politico on Wednesday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich predicted that the fiscal cliff deal passed by the House of Representatives late Tuesday night will lead to deep infighting within the Republican Party.

Gingrich called the compromise, which was opposed by both House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) but supported by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), “a bad bill written in a terrible process and worthy of defeat.”

“It will lead to a profound fight in the GOP,” Gingrich said.
