Gingrich to join McDonnell in Richmond to talk about health care

Anita Kumar

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich will join Gov. Bob McDonnell, a fellow Republican, in Richmond next Friday to talk about "Creating a 21st Century Intelligent Health System in Virginia."

The event will be sponsored by the Center for Health Transformation, launched in 2003 as a project of Gingrich's consulting firm. It will take place at MeadWestvaco, a top contributor to McDonnell, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, a non-partisan tracker of money in politics.

This spring, McDonnell signed a bill that will make it illegal for the state to require citizens to purchase health care. Later, the state challenged the constitutionality of the federal health-care law.

Gingrich was a strong supporter of McDonnell and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) during the election, helping them raise hundreds of thousands of dollars at fundraisers.

Who cares what these idiots have to say about health care. Why not ask Newt about family family values and fidelity those are subjects in which he should be an expert.
