Leader on National Security, Leadership and the Future of Health Care
Newt Gingrich is well known as the architect of the "Contract with America " that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in forty years. After he was elected Speaker, he disrupted the status quo by moving power out of Washington and back to the American people. Under his leadership, Congress passed welfare reform, passed the first balanced budget in a generation, and passed the first tax cut in sixteen years. In addition, the Congress restored funding to strengthen our defense and intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission.
But there is a lot more to Newt Gingrich than these remarkable achievements. As an author, Newt has published ten books including the best-sellers Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America (January 2005), Contract with America and To Renew America. Lessons Learned the Hard Way, 1945, and Window of Opportunity are more books to add to his accomplished list. He is also the author of Gettysburg and Grant Comes East, active history studies in the lessons of warfare based on a fictional account of the Battle of Gettysburg and its aftermath. His latest book, Never Call Retreat: Lee & Grant, the Final Victory is the third book in the series (June 2005). Newt Gingrich is also the author of Saving Lives and Saving Money, which demonstrates how to transform health and healthcare into a 21st century
