Newt Gingrich told Jon Stewart that Democrats were socialists because they want a government-run healthcare program. “Why would you believe if Albany, New York can’t run the state government and Sacramento, California can’t run the state government why would you believe a Washington based national health program would work,” asked Gingrich.
“Why would you believe that a Washington based national military program could work and healthcare program couldn’t ?” replied Stwart. “If the government can run an Army — if it can run a war then why can’t it run, let’s say, a series of TB tests?”
