Yesterday, I wrote in the American Spectator that Newt Gingrich has been on the wrong side of too many crucial health care debates. In this video, from a discussion in 2005, he endorses insurance mandates.
He begins with a bit of his trademark stream-of-consciousness maundering about the need for 100% coverage if we want proper preventive care in a “rational system.” Then he utters these deadly words:
You ought to either have health insurance or you ought to post a bond.
