The U.S. Senate once again finds itself at an impasse when it comes to the GOP healthcare bill and their plan to repeal ObamaCare.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich recently revealed a nightmare scenario for the GOP that may actually come true.
Gingrich, who appeared on “Hannity” on Monday, suggested that the GOP may lose Congress to the Democrats if they don’t get their act together soon.
Conservative Tribune reports:
To be sure, there have been some minor moves made by Congress that will help improve the economy, particularly in the realm of rolling back some of the more onerous regulations imposed by the prior administration, which have laid the groundwork for future job growth.
But there is much more that needs to be done, and the Republican-led Congress have few legitimate excuses for not making more of an effort to address the economic agenda — an agenda they were voted into office to promote.
“If we don’t have economic growth next year, I think we’re in real danger of having Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2019,” Gingrich warned.
“They have also got to pass, I think, by Thanksgiving, and get signed into law by Thanksgiving, a very large tax cut,” the former speaker continued. “Retroactively designed back to January 1, to make sure we have enough economic growth in 2018 that Republicans can run as the party of prosperity, of jobs, of higher take-home pay, and of economic growth.”
“And I would say the highest focus ought to be on getting the tax bill through because if we don’t have economic growth next year, I think we’re in real danger of having speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2019,” Gingrich added. “If we do get enough economic growth; I think frankly we will probably get reelected.”
