Catron Dissects A Newt

In his latest American Spectator OpEd, David Catron takes a closer look at Newt Gingrich's health care policies. It's not a pretty sight.

In his piece "Newt's Health Problems", Catron notes:
Gingrich praised many of Donald Berwick's ideas, based on bad study on medical errors.

Gingrich supported government-financed end-of-life counseling.

Gingrinch has supported an individual insurance mandate.

Gingrich may be an articulate intelligent politician with some good idea on some issues. But don't mistake him for a principled defender of free-market health care reforms.
