In the summer of 2011, the Washington establishment pinned its hopes on a so-called 'Super Committee' of 12 Congressmen and Senators to solve America's deficit and spending problems. The Committee was established with a law that imposed mandatory cuts to defense and other programs as a threat to force action.
Newt Gingrich was alone in calling this "Super Committee" what it was: "a truly dumb idea". Today we heard, as predicted by Newt, that the Super Committee has failed.
We need a president with the experience of balancing the federal budget and reforming government if we are going to get our fiscal house in order. That's Newt.
