Gingrich Says Medicare Reform is Politically Dangerous

Newt Gingrich says the Republicans' proposed overhaul of the Medicare system -- which the House is expected to vote on this week -- is a "dangerous political exercise," National Journal reports.

Said Gingrich: "This is not something that Republicans can afford to handle lightly."

Meanwhile, the New York Times notes that if Republicans wonder what attacks from Democrats might look like, "they need only to look to the last election, when Republicans launched searing ads against President Obama's cuts to a program called Medicare Advantage."
