Newt May 2011: I Fought ObamaCare Mandate For Two-And-A-Half Years

In the early days of his presidential campaign, Newt Gingrich made an emphatic denial of ever supporting a federal individual mandate for health insurance coverage. The video message, posted to his campaign website in May 2011, shows the former speaker talking directly to the camera saying that he has always opposed a federal mandate and that he fought ObamaCare’s version for “two-and-a-half years.”


Newly uncovered audio from May 2009 shows Gingrich describing the federal individual mandate pushed by his think-tank at the time of the crafting of ObamaCare. May 2009 would have fallen into the “two-and-a-half year window Mr. Gingrich says he was fighting against the ObamaCare federal mandate.
