Gingrich blasts Democrats’ nearly $2T stimulus package, warns ‘radical’ agenda will be bad for Congress

Former Speaker of the House and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich provides insight on ‘America’s Newsroom.’

Former Speaker of the House and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich said Friday on “America’s Newsroom” the Democrats will throw away control of the Congress with their “radical” budget agenda.
