Robert Reich, Robert Reich’s Blog
Excerpt: “During a morning appearance on Fox News, Mitt Romney said Newt Gingrich should return the $1.6 million in payments he received from mortgage financial giant Freddy Mac. … What’s Gingrich’s response?

Lee Romney, Kim Murphy and Kate Linthicum, Los Angeles Times

But want has become a term of political abuse, with Newt Gingrich launching his campaign earlier this year by branding Obama ‘the food stamp president’ and continues to berate him as such. Indeed, behind the partisan posturing over deficit reduction, it is rarely noted that rather than impose taxes on millionaires, Republicans are eager to balance the budget on the stomachs of the hungry.”
