Newt Gingrich: Tax Reform is the “Whole Game”

By NTK Staff | 09.08.2017 @1:08pm

The former House speaker thinks that voters will reward the GOP for what he calls "tax cuts."

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Fox News on Friday that getting tax reform done was the “whole game” for Congressional Republicans, and successful legislation would reward the GOP in the long run.

Gingrich doubted that Congressional Democrats would assist GOP efforts to reform the tax code, but this fact shouldn’t deter Republicans, he said.

“If [Americans] have more money in their pocket[s] by Christmas, if they see more economic growth, if they see more job creation, then this will have been a successful year,” Gingrich said.

The former House Speaker called the effort a “tax cut,” and he said that it would define the GOP’s year. “It comes down to one gigantic bill,” Gingrich added.
