Newt In 2009: Praise For Obama's Individual Mandate, ObamaCare Legislative Process

New audio excerpts from a conference call run by Newt Gingrich for his think tank, Center for Health Transformation, have surfaced. Earlier videos that have turned up over the past few weeks show Gingrich extolling the virtues of the individual mandate, but he has been able to distance himself from the remarks by saying he was wrong to support an individual mandate at the time of rival Mitt Romney’s state version in Massachusetts.

However, this is the first example of Gingrich specifically endorsing President Barack Obama’s federally mandated version which many conservatives believe is unconstitutional and Gingrich has described as “clearly unconstitutional.”
