Gingrich Says Sebelius Guilty Of “Soviet Tyranny”; Powell Says Gingrich Just “Stir(s) Up Dust”
For the unforgivable sin of informing insurance companies that the government will protect consumers from unjustifiable rate hikes, HHS Secretary Katherine Sebelius is being accused by Newt Gingrich of “Soviet tyranny.” At the Values Voter Summit, Gingrich said:
GINGRICH: When Secretary Sebelius said the other day she would punish insurance companies that told the truth about the cost of Obamacare, she was behaving exactly in the spirit of the Soviet tyranny. And if she’s going to represent left-wing thought police about Obamacare, she should be forced to resign by the new Congress.
On “Meet the Press”, Colin Powell said it would be much better for Republicans to attack President Obama “On policy, not nonsense, and that Gingrich says outrageous things “occasionally to make news and also to stir up dust.”
