Gingrich Inc. Says ‘Our Very Survival As A Country’ Depends On U.S. Manufacturing, Buys Campaign T-Shirts In El Salvador

Via: Think Progress

Twitter-challenged Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich went on Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday where he attacked President Obama’s economic policies and called for “put[ting] Americans back to work” by rebuilding “American manufacturing.”

“We can’t have a national security system if we don’t make anything,” Gingirch said, “so our verysurvival as a country requires us to rebuild our manufacturing base.”

While Gingrich is right to call for more American manufacturing, he apparently isn’t interested in contributing to this vital industry himself, as his campaign’s t-shirts are made in El Salvador, ABC News discovered last week.

His campaign blamed the embarrassing fact on the campaign’s “volunteers.”

With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have realize what that implies. It’s not an abstraction. I’m a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me. It means you believe in slavery. It means that you’re going to enslave not only me, but the janitor at my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants who work in my office, the nurses.”

But on Thursday evening, the ophthalmologist from Bowling Green said there was one thing HE WOULD NOT CUT: Medicare physician payments

In fact, Paul — who says 50% of his patients are on Medicare — wants to end cuts to physician payments under a program now in place called the sustained growth rate, or SGR.

“Physicians should be allowed to make a comfortable living.”

personal thought:

I agree physians should be able to make a comfortale living; but people who are ‘struggling’ should not end up in the ‘poor house’ in order to pay their medical bills.

Or go without, and die.
