Minneapolis – Newt Gingrich recently labeled the Democrats the “party of food stamps” in an effort to sway votes for the GOP. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the former Speaker of the House accused the party of enacting policies that have forced many to seek out food stamps and other sources of government assistance, while labeling the GOP as the “party of paychecks.”

Gingrich is quoted by the AP as stating “Most Americans would like to get a paycheck… Most Americans would not like to be forced to have food stamps handed out by liberal Democrats.”

Hari Sevugan, press secretary for the Democratic National Committee, is quoted as stating in opposition to Gingrich’s remarks, “Under Republican economic policies, nearly 800,000 Americans lost their job every month… Under Democratic economic policies, we are adding jobs every month. That's the choice.”
