In the wake of the passage of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus package, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Friday predicted the Democrats will throw away their control of Congress with a “radical” budget agenda.
Gingrich told Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” that the Democrats “have clearly decided” they will “go for broke on a radical agenda.” He said this “almost certainly guarantees” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will take over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) role.
“[L]et me start and point out this is the third time they’ve done this. Bill Clinton passed a huge tax increase with no Republicans, and in 1994, they lost 54 seats in the House. Pelosi and others rammed through bills with no Republicans, and in 2010, they lost 63 seats in the House. What the Democrats have now clearly decided is that they are going to go for broke on a radical agenda.
