GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: You think the Republicans will not budge on the tax cuts and the Democrats will move closer to the Republicans’ position?
GINGRICH: Democrats are faced with a real crisis. The president is about to preside over the United States defaulting on its debt. He can’t do that. So he is going to have to in the end agree to something. The Republicans are in a position to say they are very happy to avoid a default if he will sign a spending cut bill.
VAN SUSTEREN: I think what the Democrats will say, they are going to say the Republicans just want the rich to have all the money and they are willing to put the country in default to do that.
GINGRICH: Right. If you are the Republicans you should say we have more people on food stamps today than ever before in history. President Obama is the most successful food stamp president in American history. We need a program to put 14 million Americans back to work. We are committed to creating jobs. The Democrats are committed to killing jobs. You decide which future you want, paychecks or food stamps?
Republicans shouldn’t flinch because Democrats yell class warfare. Republicans shouldn’t blink and run for the hills. They ought to be calm and say this is the Obama depression it is going to get worse under his policies and we ought to change it now.
