CBS Sunday Morning, Republican Newt Gingrich said today that he and House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan are on the same side on Medicare, as the presidential candidate of the Democratic Republican Party denounced “scare tactics” in the health insurance program for seniors.
Gingrich, appearing on CBS ‘Face the Nation, again sought to distance itself from a comment made in a program of Sunday morning last week that the plan of Ryan, a Republican from Wisconsin. To convert the popular Medicare program for older people in a voucher system amounted to “social engineering right.”
“I probably used language unfortunate,” Gingrich said his comments on May 15 on NBC’s Meet the Press. Today, he reiterated that he supports Ryan attempts to curb entitlement spending such as Medicare, which are among the biggest drivers of the nation’s debt.
“Paul Ryan has initiated a process,” said Gingrich. “… It is a matter of good social engineering. Republicans must start with a Republican plan, go to the American people and explain it and modify it if necessary. … This is the beginning of a deep conversation about that the fiscal crisis. ”
Asked today about “the right social engineering” of Gingrich commented, Ryan told NBC they were “deeply flawed” and “serious distortion” of his budget plans. In its proposal, the GOP-led House has already approved the plan for Medicare Ryan affect those who are now 55 years and younger.
When eligible for Medicare, the elderly would be able to choose from a menu of privately run health insurance programs rather than government-run. The plan has been widely called a voucher system, but Ryan prefers to call it a “special assistance” program.
Gingrich said Democrats tried to scare the American people about Ronald Reagan’s plans to reform Medicare in the 1980′s and did the same to him when he was chairman of the House in early 1990.
“It’s a shame for Democrats to lie,” said Gingrich. “We will win, in fact (that) argument for a third time.”
