Gingrich Raps Obama For 'Big-Government' Budget

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is labeling
President Barack Obama's $3.6 trillion budget plan a "higher-tax,
weaker-economy, fewer-jobs" blueprint that should trigger the most
crucial policy debate since 1980.
The leading Republican said he he actually agrees with much of
Obama's rhetoric, but that there's a "gap between the words and
reality."
Gingrich said there are pieces of Obama's budget that are
"doable," including projected savings from more closely watching
for fraud in entitlement programs. But the Georgian also said,
"The problem with the overall budget is that it's a job-killing
budget."
Gingrich was interviewed Friday on CBS's "The Early Show."
