More than ten years ago, Newt Gingrich drew up a Contract with America. As Speaker of the House, he promised the Republican-controlled Congress would lower taxes, make government smaller and more responsive. He promised a balanced budget, tort reform and welfare reform. Much of what Gingrich promised was passed, and Americans still feel the effects of that landmark legislation today. Recently, Mr. Gingrich has been calling for health care reform, and he's come Cleveland to speak at the Cleveland Clinic's medical innovation summit and the Town Hall series. He spoke to ideastream's Dan Moulthrop about the way to fix the nation's health care system, what happened to the Republican Revolution, and whether he'll make a run for the White House in 2008.
