Gingrich Then: Ryan Plan Is “Right Wing Social Engineering.” Now: “He Met My Only Objection.”
Newt Gingrich now supports Paul Ryan’s budget plans, even though he referred to it in 2011 as “right wing social engineering” without qualification.
“You now have a national leader who is capable of talking in detail with the American people about some very complicated topics,” Gingrich said.
Further he said that the Wisconsin Republican congressman answered his issues with the Medicare plan by reworking it with Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and including different options.
“He came back with an improved Medicare plan. He met my only objection,” Gingrich said.
