Newt Gingrich is a RINO
Gingrich’s voting record is characterized by a lot of missed votes.
He voted for at least three Department of Health and Human Services appropriations bills which allowed taxpayer money to be used to pay for some abortions. These bills contained no provision that abortion providers (like Planned Parenthood) could not also obtain these funds also for other purposes. For links and further details on these bills look at my exposé on Rick Santorum, another bum who claims to be prolife, yet votes for this garbage.
He voted yes on the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy regarding homosexuals in the military. (Remember that at the time, the law had been more strictly against gays serving in the military than under DADT.) Newt skipped the votes on the Defense of Marriage Act and the Federal Marriage Amendment.
Gingrich voted to give the President a line item veto (a violation of the rules laid down by framers in the Constitution which have not changed). Newt voted for NAFTA, a clear indication that he is a national sovereignty-killing globalist.
Newt cosponsored the Fairness in Broadcasting Act (“The Fairness Doctrine” bill). This bill requires that all political views expressed on radio must be followed by an equal amount of time given to someone of an opposing viewpoint. This is a blatant violation of the constitutional guarantee of freedom of speech.
